A Reproducibility Workshop Series for Biomedical Researchers

The Library, Graduate Division, and Open Science Group at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) collaborated in the Fall of 2019 on a credit-bearing workshop series on biomedical reproducibility. The series was targeted at UCSF graduate students and researchers and designed to satisfy NIH Rigor and Reproducibility requirements. In addition to covering open data, open code, open protocols, and open access, this workshop series included sessions on designing rigorous experiments, engaging with new forms of peer review, and building a reproducible lab. The goal of this project was for subject experts to provide hands-on training that will improve research workflows, stimulate conversations about open science and research reproducibility, and build an open curriculum that can be replicated by other institutions. This talk describes this innovative workshop series and reports on pre-workshop assessments of researchers' knowledge and behaviors regarding reproducibility.
