About this Event

What is A ReproHack?

ReproHacks are low pressure and give participants the opportunity to work with real-world research data. They will also be able to network and learn from colleagues with different research and software experience.The aim isn’t to undermine or discredit researchers or their work. Those organising and participating in ReproHacks recognise that reproducibility is a beneficial scientific activity in itself. The feedback that the events generate help researchers to improve their research, how it’s presented and ultimately aiding reproducibility and accelerating research.

Reprohacks are taking place at five of the eight N8 Research universities. If your institution isn’t hosting one but you want to get involved, don’t worry, ALL reprohacks are open to anyone from across the partnership. If your institution isn’t hosting one you can still attend or if the date for your home institution’s reprohack isn’t convenient you can still join in at a different university.

How Does it Work?

In the run up to the event researchers are encouraged to submit papers, code and data to a repository ready for reproduction. As N8 CIR’s current research themes are Digital Health and Digital Humanities we would be keen to hear from researchers in these areas.

You can submit a paper here: https://sheffield-university.shinyapps.io/n8cir-reprohacks/

  • When submitting a paper you will need to include the following information:
  • Your name, the paper title and where it was published
  • An explanation of why we should attempt to reproduce this paper
  • URLs for the paper, data and code
  • A list of programming skills that would be useful to reproduce the paper

On the day, participants will begin by agreeing on how to approach the papers under consideration. They will also discuss and outline strategies and infrastructure to help ensure the events themselves are reproducible in the future.

These events are only open to those working or studying at one of the N8 Universities.
