Geography and Environment Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training, LSE

The Geography & Environment Department is pleased to host you for the first Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Faculty: Greer Gosnell (LSE, Grantham Research Institute), Ben Groom (LSE, Department of Geography & Environment), Thomas Leeper (LSE, Department of Government), Laurence Horton (LSE Library), Rachael Meager (LSE, Department of Economics), and Arnaud Vaganay (Meta-Lab).

Participants will learn about a range of innovative practices and tools, including:

  • Pre-registration
  • Pre-analysis Plans
  • Data management and de-identification
  • Tools for transparent workflows, including the Open Science Framework (OSF), Git, R, and dynamic documents.

With this training, we aim to directly impact researchers’ practices in favor of transparency and reproducibility. We focus on topics such as pre-registration, pre-analysis plans, and version control so that participants can apply these tools to their own work. We hope that these events will have long-term, sustainable impacts on scientific norms and practices as learners and faculty continue to incorporate innovative tools and methods into curricula and coursework.
