Open Research and Reproducibility Conference 2023

Open Research and Reproducibility Conference 2023 In-Person

Join us for Northumbria's second annual open research and reproducibility conference since joining the UKRN. This conference, open to Northumbria staff and Postgraduate Reseachers, offers you a great opportunity to learn more about key areas of open research and how it can benefit your work. 

What is Open Research and why does it matter?

Open research covers a wide range of practices and principles designed to increase the transparency, re-usability and discoverability of your research.  This is becoming increasingly important for the advancement of research and promotion of reproducibility, quality, and integrity.

At Northumbria, we encourage our researchers to be as open as possible, as early as possible, to a wide range of audiences. Studies show that open research attracts more attention since it is easily accessible. It raises your research profile, increases your chances to collaborate with others, and aligns you with funder policies.

Benefits of attending this event:

  • Learn more about open research, the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN), and wider issues affecting research in the UK.
  • Gain insight into open research practices at Northumbria - hear about the work being undertaken by colleagues within your department and wider faculty.
  • Have the opportunity to discuss any aspect of reproducibility and/or open research practices in your own work.
  • Hear from guest speakers who will share best practice in open research and reproducibility, and how they contribute to the success of their institutions.
  • Network with other staff and PGRs across disciplines with similar interests.
