IPR Methods Workshops


The IPR Methods Workshop is a forum where affiliates share best practices and preferred tools for conducting research.  Weekly sessions consist of tutorials, open exchanges among participants, and everything in between.  We cover a range of topics that include transparent and reproducible research, programming and statistical software (including R and Python),  statistical methods, and how to make best use of available computing resources at Ohio State.  Our hope is to stay attuned to both demand and new methodological developments, so please reach out with ideas for future workshops. 

Research Scientist Jason Thomas is the organizer of this workshop series. Some of the material presented during the workshops is available at https://github.com/buckipr/IPR_Methods_Workshop
