Digital Scholarship in Scientific Research: Open Questions in Reproducibility and Curation
Dr. Victoria Stodden
Assistant Professor, Department of Statistics
It is a well-accepted fact that computation is emerging as central to the scientific enterprise. With this transformation, the data and code that underly scientific findings have a key role in the communication of reproducible results. In this talk I describe the “reproducible research movement,” a grassroots effort taking hold in many fields, and new modalities to encourage sharing of data and code including new funding agency and journal policies, and new tools such as http://RunMyCode.org . Finally, I will introduce open questions facing the reproducible research movement, including costs, curation, and accessibility.
