Brief Write up about the session: Over the last half century, many cases of misconduct have been seen in scientific publications: several published papers have been retracted as a result of outright fraud, data manipulation, data theft, and other negative practices. The core tenets of the scientific research processes are not always upheld by all researchers. During the past decade, the field of reproducible research has been welcomed in many corners of scientific research. Its overarching goal is to revive excellence in scientific research. It requires specific tools and skill-sets at each stage of the research process, but these are not always obvious for many researchers. The need to continue to teach the benefits and processes of reproducibility in scientific research is fundamental. In this session, I will introduce participants to the landscape of reproducibility in scientific research and introduce participants to the main tools required for the implementation of reproducibility in their own research work. The session will present some case studies to highlight the issues being discussed.
