Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research workshop: 19 Nov 2015

On November 19 from 1:00-4:00, the Center for Open Science (COS) and the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) will host a workshop on Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research.  

Attendees will learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work.  The workshop will be hands-on.  Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered will include:

Research Hub closure offers lessons for IT

Research Hub, the collaboration and file-sharing platform run for four years by Information Services & Technology (IST), has been retired. The closure, spurred by budgetary constraints, came as an unwelcome surprise to Research Hub users across campus. Anticipating the disruption that would be caused by the shutdown, IST funded a team of staff to help Research Hub users migrate to new technology and services.

Welcoming Jamie Wittenberg

Research IT and the Library welcome Jamie Wittenberg to UC Berkeley and to their joint Research Data Management program team. Jamie recently completed her Master of Science in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As the  Service Design Analyst in the RDM program, Jamie will play a pivotal role in all aspects of the campus-wide initiative whose goal is to design, develop and deliver a comprehensive suite of services that help researchers manage, protect and share their data.
