ReproducibiliTea Stanford was launched on 26 October 2022

On Oct 26th, we launched the Stanford University branch of the ReproducibiliTea Journal Club. 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.

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.

ReproducibiliTea is open for all postdocs and students to join. Please register using this link.
