About ReproducibiliTea

Join us at the ReproducibiliTea journal club for an informal discussion about how we can improve transparency, reproducibility and openness in research – with tea (and other refreshments)!

We welcome colleagues and research students from any discipline, regardless of experience or expertise.

We meet on the third Thursday of each month from 12.00 - 13.00 in the Philip Robinson Library Committee room (unless indicated otherwise.) Participants not able to attend in person are welcome to join us via Teams.

The programme of events and articles for discussion is set out below. You're welcome to just drop in to any of these meetings, but if you want to join online or stay up-to-date with these and other events, please join us on Teams or on our mailing list.
