Optimal Methods for Reproducible Research
This workshop, presented by Project TIER Advisor Scott Long, University of Indiana, considered the entire process of research from and presented a workflow that is guided by the demands of producing reproducible and accurate results while working as quickly and efficiently as possible. Using this approach, your work goes faster, your findings are more trustworthy, and your results are reproducible. The course focused on strategies and rules that work with Stata, R, SPSS, SAS or any statistical package.
