Conducting Research in Modern Society: Making Science Reproducible and Transparent

This is an all day event to educate researchers about reproducibility and transparency in scientific studies.

Societal pressure to publish new or novel research findings has contributed to public concerns and criticisms about the credibility of scientific studies. David Mellor, Project Manager at the Center for Open Science, will help educate researchers about reproducibility and transparency, ultimately producing research that is more effective at solving problems. The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute (IHSI) invites researchers across campus to learn more about issues in research design, development, and publication, and the tools available through the Center for Open Science. Please join this exciting day of education for all members of the scientific community.
