26 April-24 May 2022: online

Live calls: every Tuesday 9:45am - 12pm (UK Time)

Ideally, research is collaborative, well-documented, sharable, and can be reproduced by others (or by the original researchers at a later point in time). Not only does this make a researcher’s job much easier, it makes their work more valuable, citable and extensible.

This training series, provided by the UK Data Service, walks you through how to:

  • make your research ready for open science;
  • apply reproducibility to social science and other 'tricky' topics; and
  • collaborate, document and share research in diverse contexts.

Each week of activity in this bootcamp will comprise a range of components, some synchronous (eg. workshop sessions led by the instructors and delivered over Zoom) and some asynchronous (eg. video-recorded talks, contributing to discussion boards, completing work independently/in small groups, etc).

Further information

This course requires a solid commitment of four to six hours each week.  Bursaries are available to cover the cost of the fee for NCRM courses.
