In order for your work to be reproducible you need to be able to give another person all the information (and potentially tools) they need to recreate the work you have carried out. This means that you are providing them with the evidence that your work has been carried out correctly and they can be reassured about the integrity of your work.
When carrying out your own research you should aim to make the following things clear:
Florian has written an excellent article entitled Five selfish reasons to work reproducibly. This amusing yet serious article gives great advice about how working reproducibly will help your career.
The Turing Way is a guide to researching reproducibly, written by a community of people working in research. Its aim is “to provide all the information that researchers need at the start of their projects to ensure that they are easy to reproduce at the end”.
The University of California Berkeley has a Library Guide on reproducible research with a list of useful resources that you could use to aid reproducibility in your own research.
The UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) brings together researchers who are passionate about reproducible research and aims to ensure there is coordination across all UK research institutions in advancing the reproducibility agenda.
