A close partner of BITSS, the Center for Open Science (COS) has launched a free consulting service to anyone seeking help with “statistical and methodological questions related to reproducible practices, research design, data analysis, and data management.”
The Center is dedicated to increasing the “openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research” and is looking to advance its mission through a more hands-on approach. Those with methodological questions can email firstname.lastname@example.org for free assistance from computer and data scientists trained in reproducibility and advanced research methods. If a question is too complicated to be answered via email, researchers can schedule a Google Hangout with a COS consultant to have their questions answered in real time. Visit the COS Google Calender for availability.
The Center also offers online and on-site workshops for those seeking to gain a greater understanding of open research topics and tools. For more information on the details of COS’s services visit their Statistical & Methodological Consulting Services page.
