What is Research Reproducibility?

Reproducible research ... Authors provide all the necessary data and the computer codes to run the analysis again, re-creating the results.

Replication: A study that arrives at the same scientific findings as another study, collecting new data (possibly with different methods), and completing new analyses.

Wed 24th January 2024 Transparent and Rigorous Political Research: Rationale, Contexts and Trends [Join via Teams 14.00-15.00], Dr Eike Rinke, University of Leeds   


Openness and transparency constitute a foundational principle for research integrity. Openness can promote rigour, constructive scrutiny, accountability and can enable others to build on research. However, it can also bring challenges. This talk will explore the reasons behind calls for openness and transparency in political research and what they can and should mean in this field. Eike will survey how the idea of open research has been adopted in political science and the larger trends in how political research is done it has precipitated. He will also point to important challenges in making political research more open and discuss specific qualitative and quantitative research practices that political scientists can use to make their own work more open.

Short speaker bio

Research ReproducibiliTea

ReproducibiliTea is a world-wide network of open research (journal) clubs that discuss ideas about improving transparency and reproducibility in research work, and the open research movement at a larger scale.

The UEA section of ReproducibiliTea was set up in November 2021 by PhD students and ECRs across all faculties who were local leads for the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN): Prerna Aneja; Dr. Ann-Kathrin Johnen; Dr. Amanda Burke; Dr. Kamran Qureshi; Dr. Gonçalo da Silva.

UEA joined the UKRN in 2021 and our institutional lead is Dr. Stéphanie Rossit.  The UKRN is peer-led consortium that aims to ensure the UK retains its place as a centre for world-leading research. They do this by investigating the factors that contribute to robust research, promoting training activities, and disseminating best practice.

The main aim of the UEA ReproducibiliTea sessions is to support researchers from all career stages (from students to professors) in navigating the possibilities and challenges that the open research movement brings about. Through these sessions, the organisers hope to encourage researchers to adopt more open research practices and show them the benefits of doing so on both an individual and community-level.

These events take place on the last Wednesday of the month. For more info, please contact
