Current Best Practices in Quantitative Research
Thursday, October 31st, 2019, 2:00 - 4:00 pm, Rod Library 287
Did you know that some journals or reviewers prefer or even require that you pre-register your study before you collect data? Or that you have to have a plan to make your data public for federal grants and many journals? There has been a revolution in research in the past several years--you want to make sure you're caught up on the latest best practices. In this workshop, we'll talk you through what pre-registration is, why it matters, and how to do it (including templates and websites). We'll also explain what a data management plan is, discuss common issues that arise (e.g., privacy), and give you several options for making your data and materials public. Presented by Dr. Helen Harton with other speakers. Registration requested.
