Replication Games and 2023 Workshop on Reproducibility
Toronto Replication Games
February 22, 2023
In this event sponsored by the DSI, participants will be matched with other researchers working in the same field (e.g., economics, American Politics). Each team will work on replicating a recently published study in a leading econ/poli sci journal.
Interested researchers and teams should contact Abel Brodeur (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2023 Workshop on Reproducibility
February 23, 2023
Register for this free workshop today.
The Data Sciences Institute and CANSSI Ontario are excited to host the second annual Toronto Workshop on Reproducibility (2023 TWR). This workshop brings together academic and industry participants on the critical issue of reproducibility in applied statistics and related areas.
This hybrid workshop is free and open to all.
The Workshop has three broad focus areas:
- Evaluating reproducibility: Systematically looking at the extent of reproducibility of a paper or even in a whole field is important to understand where weaknesses exist. Does, say, economics fall flat while demography shines? How should we approach these reproductions? What aspects contribute to the extent of reproducibility.
- Practices of reproducibility: We need new tools and approaches that encourage us to think more deeply about reproducibility and integrate it into everyday practice.
- Teaching reproducibility: While it is probably too late for most of us, how can we ensure that today’s students don’t repeat our mistakes? What are some case studies that show promise? How can we ensure this doesn’t happen again?
