Get your Research Project/Article Organized, Shareable and Reproducible using R and friends

Reproducible research practices are central for scholarly dissemination and communication. The importance of sharing data and computational code has been highlighted extensively to promote transparency and replication of scientific results. Data and code sharing practices are rare in the plant pathology, but is expect to increase in the near future. It is urgent that plant pathologists get training in how to organize their research in a way that promotes effective project management, reproducibility, collaboration and sharing of results. Standardized procedures for the collection and systematic organization of research outcomes (data files, codes, graphs, manuscript, etc.), known as "research compendium", has been proposed and tools are available to facilitate its production. Participants will learn how to use existing R tools for producing a research compendium for optimizing workflow and enhancing the efficiency of analysis, re-analysis and sharing. Other tools will include introductions to the Open Science Framework, websites for generating Digital Object Identifiers (DOI), how and why to establish pre-print publications, and tools for for making independent and automated analyses.

  2. Why Reproducible Research (RR)? Data + Protocols + Code Knowledge

    Reproducible Documenting and Sharing Efficiency short term effect Accessibility short and long term effect Transparency Information pen Reproducibility Research Practices Replicability
  3. - Sponsors/journals require data (standard in molecular) - Work more

    efficiently and facilitate collaborations - Improved reproducibility (data and/or methods) - Technology (less cumbersome) is becoming available - Enhanced visibility and transparency - Multiple citable outcomes: data, code, manuscript, etc. Why to change/learn new things?
