Jeromy Anglim, fellow social scientist and R aficionado from across the globe, gave a great talk to the Melbourne R Users Group last week on the joys of creating reproducible results. A subject near and dear to me, but not one that is given enough attention in research training. Jeromy discusses tools for generating reproducible results, best practices; and provides some great SWeave examples. He also gave a nice plug to John Myles White’s ProjectTemplate library, which is a wonderful framework for any analytical workflow.
The video is embedded below and is available in the Rchive, along with a wonderful presentation by Geoff Robison on writing simple and reusable R code. Enjoy!
