Being Reproducible: SSBSS Summer School 2017
Version 1

Lecture 2: Being Reproducible: Models, Research Objects and R* Brouhaha Reproducibility is a R* minefield, depending on whether you are testing for robustness (rerun), defence (repeat), certification (replicate), comparison (reproduce) or transferring between researchers (reuse). Different forms of "R" make different demands on the completeness, depth and portability of research. Sharing is another minefield raising concerns of credit and protection from sharp practices. In practice the exchange, reuse and reproduction of scientific experiments is dependent on bundling and exchanging the experimental methods, computational codes, data, algorithms, workflows and so on along with the narrative. These "Research Objects" are not fixed, just as research is not “finished”: the codes fork, data is updated, algorithms are revised, workflows break, service updates are released. ResearchObject.org is an effort to systematically support more portable and reproducible research exchange. In this talk I will explore these issues in more depth using the FAIRDOM Platform and its support for reproducible modelling. The talk will cover initiatives and technical issues, and raise social and cultural challenges.
