Improving Reproducibility in Research
Join VRE4EIC at the Reproducibility workshop organised by the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, UK 1-3 May,2018. VRE4EIC Scientific coordinator, Keith Jeffery will participate in a discussion panel to talk about metadata (i.e. CERIF* used in VRE4EIC) and its use for data quality.
"The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from the measurement and wider research communities to understand the issues and to explore how good measurement practice and principles can foster confidence in research findings, including how we can tackle the challenge posed by increasing data volumes in both industry and research.
It is important to recognise that there is no process that can entirely eliminate measurement uncertainty, but a good measurement process can lead to an appropriate interpretation of the data.
Collecting and reporting the control experiments and systems and the details of and computational process will add confidence to results, improve the efficiency of follow-up studies, and establish a more reasonable basis for conclusions. Such practices can also add to our knowledge in ways that simply reproducing an experiment cannot." Read more on the workshops page
