Love Data @ Soton: Southampton ReproducibiliTea

Southampton ReproducibiliTea


Fortnightly in Building 32 10am – 11am
Organised by Sophie Hall and Christian Bokhove



We are a friendly group of researchers and PhD students from across the University of Southampton who meet informally to discuss robust research practice, reproducibility, replication, and open science. During these sessions, we discuss a paper relating to one of these themes. We also have guest speakers and seminar sessions.

If you are interested in reproducible research in any capacity, please feel free to come along. *Please read papers in advance of relevant sessions

Please note: the Southampton UKRN team is not a Library initiative, it has members drawn from all areas of the University and the Research Data team in the Library supports its endeavours (and not just because we like tea and cake!).

What is ReproducabiliTea?

ReproducabiliTea is an international ECR-led journal club initiative that helps young researchers create local Open Science groups that discuss issues, papers and ideas to do with improving science. For more information see the ReproducabiliTea Wiki pages.

ReproducibiliTea has now joined up with UK Reproducibility Network. You can follow them on Twitter for updates @ReproducibiliT or @ukrepro
