Search results that cannot be reproduced are not trustworthy. Despite recent moves towards a more open and transparent social science, Brazil faces challenges both in the belief in the importance of principles and in the implementation of transparency and reproducibility practices. We argue that the way to change this paradigm is through the training of young researchers. To do so, we propose conducting training workshops for undergraduate and graduate students. The project will provide an overview of principles, tools, and practices for building more transparent social research and will allow the exchange of feedback and receiving support in building a reproducible workflow in the medium and long term.
