The Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) held its Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training (RT2) online from Sep. 21-25, 2020.
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 academic researchers from across the social sciences and will provide participants with opportunities for collaborative work and skills-building. Participants are able to exchange feedback and receive support from instructors through daily online discussion forums. Following the training, BITSS also facilitated RT2 “office hours,” where participants were able to meet individually with instructors and receive guidance on their own research questions and ideas.
