ReproducibiliTea is a journal club initiative that aimed at early career researcher to create a local hub of Open Science. The initiative now expanded and includes several Universities spanning across three continents.

The details

This webpage is an overview for our ReproducibiliTea sessions this term. The exact times are subject to room availability and the alignment of the planets, so keep an eye out for emails. ;)

Each ReproducibiliTea session will involve a paper related to Open Science that we will discuss. Each paper will be provided via a link.

Keep in mind that dates and papers are subject to change, so just keep an eye out for emails.
