Jane Frazier spoke at our research team meeting today on “Reproducibility in computational research”. We had a very stimulating and lively discussion about the issues involved. One interesting idea was that reproducibility is on a scale, and we can all aim to move further along the scale towards making our own research more reproducible. For example
- Can you reproduce your results tomorrow on the same computer with the same software installed?
- Could someone else on a different computer reproduce your results with the same software installed?
- Could you reproduce your results in 3 years time after some of your software environment may have changed?
Think about what changes you need to make to move one step further along the reproducibility continuum, and do it.
