4+1 quick incentives of open reproducible research

A few months ago, o2r team member Markus published the article “In-depth examination of spatiotemporal figures in open reproducible research” in the journal Cartography and Geographic Information science. Our goal was to identify a set of concrete incentives for authors to publish open reproducible research, and for readers to engage with it. Based on semi-structured interviews, a focus group discussion, and an online survey with geoscientists, we summarised the incentives in a four-step workflow for readers who work with scientific papers (see figure below). Let’s see what these four workflow steps are who their +1 is

Reproducible Research and Geospatial Badges at AGILE 2019 conference in Limassol

Last week o2r team member Daniel went to Asia (or not?) to help a European conference with the transformation towards reproducible research. How?

The 2019 edition of the annual conference of the Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe’s (AGILE) took place in Limassol, Cyprus. It was excellently organised at the Cyprus University of Technology and consisted of a pre-conference day of workshops and three days of talks and posters across the full breadth of GI Science.

On the first day, Daniel contributed to the organisation of the third workshop in the “Reproducible Research @ AGILE” series of workshops. Adjusting the scope of the workshop after the first two iterations, the participants

o2r2 @ Conquaire Workshop

Now that we have two more years to work on open reproducible research (see our last blog post), there is also some space for an exchange with related projects and to explore potential new collaborations. We were thus very happy to receive an invitation from the Conquaire project at the University of Bielefeld for the workshop on data quality and reproducibility (03.04.2019). Conquaire started about the same time as o2r and strives for similar goals, i.e. assisting scholars in making their research results reproducible and reusable. The workshop was located at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in a very nice room that looked a bit like the United Nations headquarter - so it was good practice for the bigger goals we have in mind.

Prof. Dr. Philipp Cimiano gave the first talk of the day. He presented

o2r2 - Putting ERC into practice

The o2r project’s journey continues.

o2r2 logo On April 1st 2019 the o2r team started into a new phase (“o2r2”). In the next 30 months we plan to put our prototypes to the test with real articles, of course not without considerably improving them beforehand.

As detailed in the University of Münster’s press releases (English, German), we are

Archiving a Research Project Website on Zenodo

The o2r project website’s first entry Introducing o2r was published 1132 days ago. Since then we’ve published short and long reports about events the o2r team participated in, advertised new scholarly publications we were lucky to have accepted in journals, and reported on results of workshops organised by o2r. But there has also been some original content from time to time, such as the extensive articles on Docker and R, which received several updates over the last years (some still pending), on the integration of Stencila and Binder, or on writing reproducible articles for Copernicus Publications. These posts are a valuable output of the project, and contribute to the scholarly discussion. Therefore, when it came to writing a report on the project’s activities and outputs, it was time to consider the preservation of the project website and blog. The website is built with Jekyll (with Markdown source files) and hosted with GitHub pages, but GitHub may disappear and Jekyll might stop working at some point
