Reproducible Research Oxford
Reproducible Research Oxford is the local network of UKRN, the UK Reproducibility Network, at the University of Oxford. Its aim is to foster a culture of open research and reproducibility at Oxford, encompassing all disciplines --- including disciplines in the social sciences and in the humanities which may not identify with the "open science" label. I will discuss opportunities and challenges that have arisen in building a community focused around open research and reproducibility from the ground up.
