Scientists have been making huge progress in making their papers reproducible by publishing associated code and data.
As this is a really challenging process, we want to showcase the value of the practice, both for original authors and as a learning experience for those who attempt to reproduce the work.
Reproducibility is especially challenging in the field of medical research, given the tight restrictions around the sharing of sensitive personal data. This makes it difficult for researchers to get hands-on practice with reproducible methods.
This ReproHack, organised by the Research Support Facility of the AI for Multiple Long-term Conditions project, aims to provide exactly this kind of opportunity to Early Career Researchers of the project.
It’s important to highlight that ReproHacks are by no means an attempt to criticise or discredit work. We see reproduction as beneficial scientific activity in itself, with useful outcomes for authors and valuable learning experiences for the participants and the research community as a whole.
This event will take place during the afternoon session of the AIM ECR Day on Thursday 23 November, from 13:30 to 16:00 UTC.
This event is restricted to Early Career Researchers working within the AI for Multiple Long-term Conditions project.
