Building Services Around Reproducibility & Open Scholarship

vickysteevesheadshotInstructor: Vicky Steeves, Librarian for Research Data Management and Reproducibility, a dual appointment between New York University Division of Libraries and NYU Center for Data Science
November 1 – November 22, 2017
Please note this course start date has been re-scheduled from a previous date.

As research across domains of study has become increasingly reliant on digital tools, the challenges in achieving reproducibility have grown. Alongside this reproducibility challenge are the demands for open scholarship, such as releasing code, data, and articles under an open license. Openness is an important step towards reproducibility, but it cannot be the end of the road. This class will focus on open scholarship and reproducibility as two distinct but connected topics.

This course will examine, cover and discuss:

  • The discourse around open scholarship
  • Best practices around use of open source tools, creating an open web presence, preparing research output for publication, and linking those outputs to more traditional publications.
  • The tools that both researchers and librarians are using to engage in open work.
