Introduction to ORR

Markus introduces you to the topic of ORR and its learning outcomes.

Get to know our expert Dr Markus Konkol

Watch the video above to get an insight into Markus’ professional background.

Open Reproducible Research (ORR) is a crucial topic in Open Science and combines several open practices, such as Open Data, Open Code, and Open Source Infrastructure. It can help us understand and tackle global challenges, such as climate change, natural hazards, urbanisation, digitisation, and pandemics. But what does ORR actually mean? Is it common practice? (spoiler alert: It’s not!).

You will find answers to these questions in this lecture and learn what is needed to achieve ORR, which obstacles make it difficult, and how ORR can contribute to increasing the transparency, verifiability, and reusability of research results.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of this lecture, you will be able to:

  • Articulate what Open Reproducible Research is
  • Understand which obstacles impede Open Reproducible Research
  • Apply Open Reproducible Research principles to your own work
  • Choose appropriate tools to publish Open Reproducible Research

Before we start to dive deep into ORR, I will give you an overview of this chapter in the next video.

Please, find the slides of this topic in the download section.
