Our two guest speakers, Professor Carole Goble CBE and Ellen Broad will be our guides. The ability to independently verify the result of scientific research has long been one of the main principles of scientific method. By creating reproducible research – through publishing the methods, code and data along with the scientific paper – others can reproduce the results and create new work from this research. Although this might seem an essential position to take for the creation of better science it is not universally implemented. Reproducibility in policy is an emerging area. Like science it would seem to be an essential component for making good policy decisions that can then be tried and tested by others.
