Event description

Description

PLEASE NOTE: This ticket includes attendance for talks and workshops. The number of tickets is very limited. However, more tickets are available to attend the talks only and can be booked here.

Many scientific disciplines including Cancer research, Genetics, Psychology and Medicine currently face the so-called
Replication Crisis: independent research groups fail to replicate a significant amount (up to 90%) of previously published work (Science 2015; Elife 2017; Plos Medicine 2007).

"No researcher is too junior to fix science": this one-day training event is about “Reproducible Science” and how we as Early Career Researchers can make our science more robust and replicable.
The programme has been developed through conversations with experts in reproducible science who will provide theoretical background and demonstrate practical solutions.

We have invited five excellent speakers who are leading experts in the field of reproducible science and can look forward to inspiring presentations and short workshops. These will provide an introduction to the replication crisis and present four ways to make science more robust, the event will close with a round table discussion:

Talks:

1) An introduction to the replication crisis and concerns of reproducibility - Prof. Marcus Munafo (Bristol University)

2) An introduction to preregistration and registered reports - Prof. Chris Chambers (Cardiff University)

3) "Fallibility in Science" - responsible ways to handle mistakes - Prof. Dorothy Bishop (University of Oxford)


Workshops:

4)
Good data and code sharing practices - Dr. Candice Morey (University of Edinburgh)

5) Concept, Strategies and free tools to conduct appropriate power analyses - Dr. Richard Morey (Cardiff University)

6) Round table discussion will all speakers


The aim of the course is to help PhD students developing their own manifesto for reproducible science for their future work. The training will be relevant to GW4 PhD students across disciplines that involve quantitative data analysis, including biomedical research, psychology, public health and related fields. All materials and further reading will be made available on our public project page on the Open Science Framework.
