The Future of Research is Online

The nature of research is changing. The reproducibility crisis has prompted experts to call for more open science and communication in research. Additionally, researchers are being pushed to maintain more of an online presence, and altmetrics now contribute to researcher's career progression and evaluations. At Open Research, we will be empowering researchers to get their data and the story it tells online, and encouraging greater transparency of the research process and openness of data.

What can participants expect to get out of this event?

With free snacks and beverages to keep us focused,
participants will learn how to:

  • Conduct data exploration and wrangling There will be a range of workshops designed to teach you how to use your specific tools to explore and visualise their datasets. Tools include R, Matlab and Python.
  • Effective data visualisation Using visual information to the greatest effect, accuracy and impact and the visualisation tools in your respective programming languages.
  • Telling your research story online Hosting your data, code (via github) and visualisations and research story online.

Who is this event aimed at?

This event is aimed at all researchers who would like to learn how to better analyse and communicate their data online. It will be suitable for all researchers - from those who haven't coded before, to those who are experienced at coding in their specific tools and who would like to learn how to use data to convey a message online. If you are new to programming, please consider attending one of our beginners workshops
