Overcoming Barriers to Reproducible Research: A Panel Discussion
Wednesday, September 20th, 3:00-4:30pm in Norlin Library, Room N410

Reproducibility has become an important and sometimes heated topic of debate in a number of disciplines, including psychology, biomedical research, and economics (just to name a few). Several recent large-scale attempts to replicate published findings have produced potentially troubling results, and the proliferation of computational methods across many fields of research also raises new questions about how best to ensure reproducibility. As part of its inaugural “Year of Data” series of events, the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship ( is hosting a panel discussion on “Overcoming Barriers to Reproducible Research” on Wednesday, September 20th, 3:00-4:30pm in Norlin Library, Room N410.

A panel of experts will draw from a wide range of roles, experiences, and disciplinary perspectives to discuss significant barriers to reproducibility as well as possible solutions that could enable researchers to overcome these challenges. Panelists will include:

  • Tobin Magle, Cyberinfrastructure Facilitator, Colorado State University
  • Laura Michaelson, PhD Candidate, Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder
  • Eric Vance, Associate Professor, Applied Mathematics and Director, Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, University of Colorado Boulder

Please join us for a fun and engaging discussion! This event is being held in conjunction with a hands-on workshop on “Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research.” See here for more information about that event:

The Libraries have added access to new resources, including:
