The Effective Statistician Reproducible Research Course

Do you struggle reading your own code, let alone the code of your co-workers?

Is it painful to update or add analyses when you get questions from co-authors or reviewers?

Do you feel like there must be a better more effective way of working?

Many statisticians and data scientists – especially in academic settings – struggle with the same challenges.

The Effective Statistician Reproducible Research Course delivered by Heidi Seibold - Reproducible Research Expert – and Alexander Schacht helps you and your colleagues to conduct research in a reproducible way via a structured 6 step process.

Through this easy to implement 6 step process, you will learn best practices around:

  • Organisation of files, folders, etc,
  • Effective documentation,
  • Stabilizing the computing environment, and
  • Publishing in a reproducible way.

Additionally, you will learn about the strategy to drive the adoption of these practices across your organisation or working group.

After the course, you will have a system in place that makes it easy to work effectively for yourself and with colleagues. You will also know how to drive changes across your organisation and have taken steps to take your organisation to the next level with respect to reproducible research.

The Effective Statistician Reproducible Research Course in detail:

  • About 4 hours of videos broken down in easy to view segments (lifetime access)
  • Access to 4 one-hour questions and answer sessions with Heidi and Alexander spread over May, June, July, and September. These will be recorded and made available.
