BITSS will hold its next Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training (RT2) on 8/25, 8/27, 9/1, and 9/3. RT2 will be hosted online and sessions will take place 8–11:30 am PT (GMT-7) on the days noted.

RT2 provides participants with an overview of tools and practices for transparent and reproducible social science research. The program is developed and delivered by leading researchers from across the social sciences and will provide participants with opportunities for collaborative work and skills-building. Participants will be able to exchange feedback and receive support from instructors through daily online forums. Following the training, BITSS will also facilitate office hours where participants will be able to meet with instructors and receive guidance on their research questions and ideas.

  • Appropriate use of statistics and interpretation of statistical evidence
  • Hands-on practice with version control using Git (GitHub or the Command Line)
  • Dynamic documents with R or Stata
  • Data sharing and management practices for reproducibility.
