Human Factors and Ergonomics Society: HFES

Project TIER Directors Richard Ball and Norm Medeiros will discuss the benefits to researchers of adopting a reproducible workflow for computational/quantitative work. The webinar will sketch out the fundamental principles of conducting reproducible research, and present specifications for constructing documentation that is easily shareable and satisfies the policies for replication materials that are now commonly adopted by journals and funders. The examples used to illustrate reproducible practices will be implemented with R Markdown, but we will emphasize that the underlying principles can be applied to research conducted with any scriptable software package.
