Center for Reproducible Science

Good Research Practice (GRP)

The aim of the CRS is to improve the reproducibility of research. We can achieve this by training the next generation of researchers. We created courses in Good Research Practices (GRP) for early-career researchers: PhD students, postdocs and young PIs. For more information and course booking, see Graduate Campus under "Courses for PhD candidates" and "Courses for postdocs".

Course topics include:

  • What are the major causes of irreproducible research?
  • Best practices in planning and design of studies.
  • Documentation of research output with the Open Science Framework (OSF).
  • Study protocols and preregistration.

GRP Day 2
Next course: March 20, 2024, 9:00-17:00h, presence course.
