ReproducibiliTea Stanford was launched on 26 October 2022

How much do you trust published research findings? Can you assess whether their methods are rigorous and reproducible? How can you make your own research open and best navigate the incentive structure in academia? ReproducibiliTea Stanford aims to create a welcoming space where graduate students and postdocs come together and discuss questions like these.

ReproducibiliTea is an international community of journal clubs dedicated to advancing Open Science and improving academic research culture. Each of the over 100 ReproducibiliTea Journal Clubs operates independently and selects articles and presentations to discuss that are most relevant to their membership. Students and Postdocs from any research discipline can participate.

On Oct 26th, we launched the Stanford University branch of the ReproducibiliTea Journal Club. Snacks and tea were provided by courtesy of the Stanford Program on Research Rigor and Reproducibility (SPORR).

The event began with a short presentation about ReproducbiliTea by Robert Thibault (current Stanford Postdoc and previous University of Bristol ReproducibiliTea Organizer). The group then discussed the topics that interest them and shared their experiences. Survey is planned to be sent next week to agree on frequency and time for meetings, papers, and topics to discuss.
