Data Management and Reproducibility Workshop

The CPD invites you to participate in the following workshop "Data Management and Reproducibility Workshop". As reproducibility of social science research is becoming an increasing concern, data management is becoming even more important. This one-day workshop is designed to leave you with a solid foundation for creating and sharing reproducible quantitative social science projects.

Please note that space is limited so make sure to sign up as soon as possible with the link below. Priority will be given to CPD students and McGill Sociology students until March 15th.



This one-day workshop should give you a solid foundation for creating and sharing a reproducible quantitative social science projects. You will learn about version control, data citations and deposits, and curating a reproducible repository. You will practice using the actual tools through exercises meant to walk you through the basics of the concepts introduced.

Outline: We will go through all the necessary steps for creating a reproducible research product. We will discuss the following topics:

1. Finding, describing, accessing and sharing datasets to enhance reproducibility

2. Data management plans/planning

3. Reproducible work and code

Each topic has a number of sub-topics and we will work through exercises using tools consistent with best practices in each topic.


This is an in-person event held in Education Building, 3700 McTavish Street, Room 624.
