ReproducibiliTea

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 staff and research students working in any discipline, regardless of experience or expertise.

The programme of events is set out below, together with article underpinning the theme for each month.

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 zoom.

You're welcome to just drop in to any of our ReproducibiliTea 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.

Meetings will take place 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 zoom. Details will be sent out via the UKRN Newcastle mailing list and team.
