Abstract

Open and reproducible research practices increase the reusability and impact of scientific research. The reproducibility of research results is influenced by many factors, most of which can be addressed by improved education and training. Here we describe how workshops developed by the Reproducibility for Everyone (R4E) initiative can be customized to provide researchers at all career stages and across most disciplines levels and across disciplines with education and training in reproducible research practices. The R4E initiative, which is led by volunteers, has reached more than 2000 researchers worldwide to date, and all workshop materials, including accompanying resources, are available under a CC-BY 4.0 license at www.repro4everyone.org.
