Reproducible Research Workflows

As top economics and finance journals now mandate code and data sharing, ensuring credibility and longevity of scholarly work is essential. This workshop equips participants with tools and techniques for reproducibility, effective communication, and efficient collaboration. Participants can bring existing research projects to reflect upon and improve their workflows with guidance from instructors and peers. Prior programming experience is beneficial but not required, as the workshop covers foundational knowledge alongside advanced reproducibility techniques applicable to any programming language.
