Earth Lab invites you to How (and Why) to Make a Research Compendium with Dr. Max Joseph – An Earth Analytics Career Webinar on Thursday March 19th, from 12-1pm MDT.
How do you bundle up the analysis associated with a research project? How can you ensure that other people can install the same software dependencies and run the same workflow on their machines? Research compendia provide one answer to these questions. A research compendium is a key component of open and reproducible science, accompanying a scientific paper and providing the data, code, and documentation required to reproduce the workflow. The central idea is to treat your analysis pipeline as software, and bundle it up into an installable, executable package. Dr. Max Joseph will offer pro tips on getting started with research compendia, and discuss how it can benefit you as a scientist. Anyone interested in open science and how to make their own work more open and reproducible should attend.
