Community Call: Reproducibility 6/8, 11ET

This week, we’re hosting a community call on issues of reproducibility in science, and we want you there! For background, the Science Lab community call takes place every other month, highlighting recent developments and work of the community relevant to science and the web. Join us to hear more about current projects, find out how you can get involved, and listen to others (or yourself!) discuss work in and around open research.

Our upcoming community call is this Thursday, June 8th.

The call is open to the public, starts at 11:00 am ET.

Call in details can be found on the call etherpad (where you can also find notes and the agenda). As with our April call, we’ll feature speakers on Air Mozilla, a video live-streaming platform which will be a departure from our typical dial in, and hopefully more accessible!

We have video for the call this month!

For June’s call, we’ll be talking about reproducibility specifically, featuring speakers who build scientific projects and programs that try to improve the reuse, ratification and remix-ability of scientific research progress. Productive open science work depends on reproducible and rigorously tested results, and we’ll tease out some of the factors that influence research reproducibility. You can look forward to hearing from the following group of speakers across research, industry, and institutional domains:

  • Fatma (Imamoglu) Deniz – developing an e-book for reproducible science, Postdoc, Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute
  • Ciera Martinez – crowdsourcing a guidebook for reproducible practice @CieraReports, Postdoc, UC Berkeley
  • Aaron Williams – using evidence to elevate the debate on policy issues @awunderground, Urban Institute
  • David McClure – collaborating at a non-profit science/society/econ policy research org @clured, Urban Institute
  • Kristin Ellis – building bio experiment bots w/ open source components @SexyLikeMeiosis, Open Trons
  • Michael Markie – developing immediate + transparent publishing for science @mmmarksman, F1000 Research
  • Heather Bryant – creating collaborative research + publishing platforms @HBCompass, Project Facet, JSK Stanford

We’ll also hear our closing updates from our 2016 Mozilla Fellows for Science, and our 2017 Global Sprint participants, as well as more updates on our 2017 Fellowship Applications, our Mini-grants + Mozfest CFPs, and our Book Club! Should be a great call!

Reminder that the Mozilla Festival Call for Proposals is open!

Have an update, blog post or event you’d like to share relevant to open science? Add it to the etherpad (see ‘Non Verbal Updates’). It’s a great way to share what you’re working on and/or interested in with the community. Don’t be shy. Have a look at last month’s notes on trust in open science for an idea of what others contributed to the conversation.
