The workshop consists of a series of talks exploring how we can improve the quality of the research we carry out through the adoption of open and reproducible research practices. This is an opportunity to meet and learn from fellow researchers from universities belonging to the North West Open Research Hub. The topics of the talks include:
Introductions to the UK Reproducibility Network and the Software Sustainability Institute
Experiences that early career researchers have had with engaging in open research practices and building communities
The importance of research software engineering in reproducible research
Exploring whether the current academic system effectively rewards bad research practices
Experiences with setting research policy at national and international levels
And a keynote talk from Professor Dorothy Bishop FRS from the University of Oxford on “Four cognitive biases that make it hard to do science well - and how to overcome them”.
The talks will be followed at 17:30 by a reception for all attendees. This event is open to everyone with early career researchers being particularly welcome!
