Workshop for Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science , to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  •  Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-Analysis plans
  • Open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s (Open Science Framework  to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.)

This workshop is aimed at graduate students and postdocs, across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

Speaker: Courtney Soderberg

Courtney is the Statistical and Methodological Consultant at the Center for Open Science and heads up their training programs for reproducible research methods. She has a Ph.D. in Experimental Social Psychology with a minor in Quantitative Psychology from UC Davis.

Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate.

Faculty Engagement Meetup: Thu, Oct. 27, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Fall 2016 Faculty Engagement Meet-up: Classroom Response Systems

Classroom Response Systems can energize an audience and engage students. They can help professors to instantly survey student opinions or judge student knowledge level. This enables professors to make on the spot decisions about what they are actually presenting in class!

We invite you to join our faculty panelists from History, Economics, Statistics, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineeringn, and Computer Science  for a conversation about the use of Classroom Response Systems.  We will discuss how to

  • Survey the students for their opinions on various issues, and use this to introduce the topic
  • Use the questions to test the level of student understanding of lecture concepts
  • Review key points from reading and homework assignments

Six Invited Speakers:

  • Fay A. Yarbrough,  Associate Professor, History Department
  • Robin C. Sickles, Reginald Henry Hargrove Professor of Economics, Professor of Statistics
  • John Greiner, Computer Science Lecturer
  • Rafael Verduzco, Associate Professor, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
  • Gary Woods, Professor in the Practice in Computer Technology
  • Rocio Doherty, Research Scientist, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering

Time: Thursday, October 27, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Location: Fondren Kyle Morrow Room
Reception with light refreshments immediately following

Cultural Anthropology and ORCID

The journal Cultural Anthropology, whose editorial team is currently at Rice, recently began to require that all authors include their ORCID identifier during the article submission process. Join the journal's managing editor, Marcel LaFlamme, in an informal discussion about the conversations that are ongoing among both the editorial team and the larger anthropology community regarding ORCID, as well as how the journal plans on using ORCID.

Light refreshments will be provided.
