New book: Implementing Reproducible Research

New book from Victoria Stodden, Friedrich Leisch, and Roger D. Peng: “Implementing Reproducible Research“.

In many of today’s research fields, including biomedicine, computational tools are increasingly being used so that the results can be reproduced. Researchers are now encouraged to incorporate software, data, and code in their academic papers so that others can replicate their research results. Edited by three pioneers in this emerging area, this book is the first one to explore this groundbreaking topic. It presents various computational tools useful in research, including cloud computing, data repositories, virtual machines, R’s Sweave function, XML-based programming, and more. It also discusses legal issues and case studies.

The chapters of the book are available for download for free on the OSF page.
