RDA Webinar: Introducing 10 Things for Curating Reproducible and FAIR Research

Taking place on 22 September at 21:00 UTC, this webinar presents "10 Things for Curating Reproducible and FAIR Research”, which are guidelines designed for curators and researchers interested in publishing and archiving reproducible research output.  It will focus on the following: 

  • Key issues in curating reproducible and FAIR (CURE-FAIR) research

  • Practical strategies that ensure publication-ready and independently understandable packages of reproducible  research materials

  • Best practices in archiving and publishing computationally reproducible studies that rely on quantitative data, primarily in the social sciences


These guidelines are intended primarily for data curators and information professionals who are charged with the publication and archival of FAIR and computationally reproducible research. Often the first reusers of the research compendium, curators have the opportunity to verify that a computation can be executed and that it can reproduce prespecified results. Curators can flag issues with a research compendium that precludes computational reproducibility and take actions to remedy problems or recommend an appropriate course of action prior to publication. 


Who Should Attend

While curation is often carried out near the end of the research lifecycle by data and archive professionals, there are many actions that other key stakeholders can take earlier in the lifecycle that can facilitate the production of FAIR and computationally reproducible research compendia. This webinar will be of interest also to researchers, publishers, editors, reviewers, and others who have a stake in creating, using, sharing, publishing, or preserving reproducible research.

This resource is primarily geared towards the social sciences. It is our hope, however, that it will serve as a starting point for the development of curatorial guidelines to extend beyond the specific concerns of the social sciences community. We believe it can extend to other domains and disciplines that use similar methods, especially those with similar curatorial concerns and requirements of archives or publishers.
