Designing and Conducting Open and Reproducible Experiments and Research in Linguistics
Author: Paul Stott
About the project
The project aims to introduce PGT and PGR students to open and reproducible research practices within Linguistics. Participants will learn about the core principles of open and reproducible research and how these are applied in Linguistics. They will learn how to design an open and reproducible project from the ground up, including: how to make best use of pre-registration via OSF.io, how to use GitHub to share data and code, how to use R to tidy, wrangle and visualise data, how to use R packages to run Linear Mixed Effects Models (LMMs).
By training current PGTs and PGRs, we hope to increase their awareness of the importance of open and reproducible research practices and encourage them to adopt these practices in their own research.
What the Accelerator Fund provided
The Accelerator Fund has allowed us to pay an instructor to run the three-day course and has allowed us to provide some catering for participants.
