Instructor: (opens in a new window)Stefan Müller (University College Dublin)

Wednesday, 15 November, 14:00-15:30 (Irish time)

Details: Transparent research practices and the reproducibility of results are highly relevant for all academic projects. A reproducible workflow is fundamental to keep track of progress and changes. Additionally, most peer-reviewed journals nowadays require uploading replication data and code to reproduce all findings reported in a paper. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use Git and GitHub to set up a reproducible workflow and implement version control for their code and manuscript. Prior knowledge of this software is not required, but participants must download (opens in a new window)GitHub Desktop and set up a free (opens in a new window)GitHub account before the workshop.
