Attention for Reproduction and Reproducibility of research is becoming increasingly important in scientific research. Therefore we invite you to join us in the OSCG-Groningen Reprohack on 11 November from 13.00-17.00 CET.
What is a Reprohack?
In a Reprohack (Reproducibility-Hackathon), participants try to reproduce the research output of other researchers, who may be other participants of the Reprohack or other researchers whoe made their data and code publicly available. During this workshop, participants will go through a research article in groups and try to reproduce the results as listed in the article using the code and data belonging to the article. This will give insight into whether the research is sufficiently transparent, clear, and reproducible. At the end of the workshop, we share our experiences and give feedback to authors to improve the reproducibility of their research.
There are two ways to participate:
1) As an author: You can test if your own research can be reproduced by others during the Reprohack. You will get feedback at the end of the event. You may decide to only provide your research or to participate in reproducing the work of others as well.
2) As an Reproducer: You can propose research to be reproduced that includes code and data to be used during the Reprohack. Or you can help in trying to reproduce the research of others attending the Reprohack. In this way, you can improve your skills and learn from each other to create reproducible research.
If you would like to participate, please fill in this form.

Did you ever read an article wishing the authors would make their data
and software available? Do you think reproducibility is a problem in
your field of research? Are you annoyed by open access fees?
Have you heard about open science, but would like to know more? Did you
always want to ask something about open science in an informal setting?
Or do you have strong opinions which you would like to share with others
at the Faculty of Science and Engineering?
Come to our first *FSE Open Science Get-together*!
When? Wednesday *20 November 16:00 – 17:30*
Where? Room 5173.0151, Linnaeusborg, Zernike
– a very short introduction to open science
– discussion: Do we need more open science at the FSE?
– practical: Is the Open Science Framework (OSF) useful for me? Trying
As members of the new Open Science Community Groningen
(https://openscience-groningen.nl)we want to start a regular meeting
about everything related to open science, with a focus on the Faculty of
Science and Engineering. In the future we hope to be a place for
discussion and a journal club in the tradition of
Everybody is welcome and we look forward to see you!
