New Directions in Archaeological Science: Improving Transparency, Openness and Reproducibility"

New Directions in Archaeological Science: Improving Transparency, Openness and Reproducibility"
9/17 (一) 9:10~3:00
台灣大學水源校區人類學系館105教室 (9:10~12:00)

In many scientific fields today there is an increasingly urgent concern about the openness and transparency of research results. This is because of several high-profile failures attempts to replicate famous results from past research. In archaeology we are not immune from these concerns, as the recent scandal from Untermassfeld, Germany, demonstrates. In this workshop I will (1) introduce the problems that we face with transparency and reproducibility in archaeology, (2) describe the cutting-edge software tools and services that many archaeologists are now using to solve these problems, and (3) provide hands-on introductory training in the use of these tools for archaeological science research and teaching. At the end of the workshop participants will have an improved understanding of the need to embrace transparent and open research practices in their work, and possess basic skills in the use of tools and services to make their research more transparent and reproducible.
