Data Conversations: Open Data, Open Methods, Reproducible Research

This event will take place on Monday June 17 from 12.00 to 13.30 hrs. in Global Room 1A36, Library Main Building.

05/07/2019 | 4:24 PM

Open data, open methods, and reproducible and transparent research are increasingly endorsed by funders, publishers, institutions and learned societies.
But what does making your research open, transparent and reproducible mean in practice? What are the advantages and the pitfalls?

In this Data Conversations researchers from different Faculties, Institutes and disciplines will have a chance to hear and learn from each other about their experiences with opening up data and methods and moving towards truly reproducible research.

Come and share your research data stories and hear others. Find the registration button at the bottom of this page.

Agenda

We have three confirmed speakers:

    - Prof. Wido van Peursen (VU Faculty of Religion of Theology) "Github as a meeting place for Biblical scholars. Open Science and community building"

About Data Conversations
Data Conversations started at the University of Lancaster in the UK. The Lancaster Data Conversations aim to bring data practitioners together to talk about how researchers create, collect, use and share data. The Data Conversations at the VU Amsterdam share the same aim and are intended to provide a forum for researchers from different subjects and disciplines to exchange practices and ideas around open data, FAIR data, research data management and related open science topics.
