QICSS Summer School on Research Reproducibility
Research Reproducibility, a cornerstone of open science, ensures the validity of results by enabling verification and confirmation by other researchers. This enhances confidence in the transparency of discoveries, promotes collaboration, and strengthens the integrity of scientific knowledge within the community.
This training will provide an overview of issues related to research reproducibility and will propose the steps to follow to carry out a replicable project.
English training: Face-to-face training on May 14 and May 15 at QICSS (3535 Queen Mary, Montreal)
French training: Face-to-face training on May 21 and May 22 at QICSS (3535 Queen Mary, Montreal)
