Open Research Conversations

Open Research, the idea that both the research process and outputs should be made publicly available as soon as possible, is prompting lots of changes in how research is conducted and communicated.

This brings many opportunities as well as some challenges and so the Library is facilitating a series of conversations focusing on different aspects of open research.

These will include talks from researchers who have made their research open and other experts sharing their experiences, promoting best practices and discussing the challenges they are facing.

Reproducibility in practice

18 January 2021 12noon - 1:00pm

Reproducibility, recreating the results others have found in their research, presents many challenges for researchers, with several studies suggesting that much published cannot be reproduced.

The University of Sheffield has an active reproducibility network, is a member of the UK Reproducibility Network and has created a new post of Research Practice Lead.

This event will include presentations and discussions on reproducibility and the practical lessons learnt from running ReproHacks. Speakers will include:

  • Tom Stafford, Department of Psychology and the University’s Research Practice Lead
  • Anna Krystalli, Research Software Engineer
