Leiden University Libraries & Elsevier seminars on Reproducible Research

Leiden University Libraries (UBL) in partnership with Elsevier will host a series of online seminars on the challenges involved in achieving reproducibility in research. The seminars aim to identify best practices that can help to overcome central challenges around reproducibility, and to convey several concrete guidelines that can help researchers during their attempts to make their own research transparent and verifiable. While discussions of crucial theoretical concepts will get ample attention, the seminars will also showcase concrete experiences gained during various case studies. The seminars will be held on Thursday 22 April, 29 April and Wednesday 12 May.
