Building Blocks for Reproducibility: RStudio and Git: Part 1. Version Control

Abstract

In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. This workshop will introduce some version control strategies that can increase the reproducibility of your work. Learning through hands-on exercises you will harness two specific tools (Git and RStudio) to support the execution of more reproducible research projects. Git is a powerful version control system and RStudio is an open-source statistical software program. No previous experience with Git or R is required for this workshop.
