Fancy an open research lunch?
Join us for a series of lunchtime talks exploring the culture and practice of open research.
From 25 February, researchers and research support professionals will share their experiences of open research practices in first of a series of informal online talks.
Hear from a range of voices across the University about the various ways you can support open research in your day-to-day work.
Initial sessions include:
Preprints & open peer review in different disciplines – Thursday 25 February, 12:30pm
Featuring Cecile De Cat, Professor of Linguistics in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, and Dr Chris Wareing of the School of Physics and Astronomy.
Cecile will talk about publishing preprints in linguistics, including sharing data and code, while Chris will discuss his experiences of publishing preprints in astrophysics, mathematics and engineering, including how that has included sharing data, code and open peer review.
Tools for Reproducible Research – Wednesday 17 March, 12:30pm
With Alex Coleman, Research Software Engineer from the Research Computing Team, and Daniel Valdenegro Ibarra, PhD Researcher in the School of Politics and International Studies.
Reproducibility is a critical part of research but often we don’t start our research projects with ensuring reproducibility in mind. Thankfully, there’s a large array of useful tools and techniques for ensuring our work is reproducible which can help supercharge our research projects and ensure we have lasting and impactful outcomes.
Not just for STEM: Open and reproducible research in the social sciences – Thursday 22 April, 12:30pm
With Viktoria Spaiser, Associate Professor in Sustainability Research and Computational Social Sciences at the School of Politics and International Studies.
Viktoria will talk about how open and reproducible research is currently practised in the social sciences. Hear about how it varies in quantitative, computational, and qualitative social research and how these practices are currently changing. Viktoria will outline the specific barriers for open and reproducible research in social science, and how at least some of them could be addressed in the future.
