The UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) is a peer-led consortium that aims to ensure the UK retains its place as a centre for world-leading research.
This will be done by investigating the factors that contribute to robust research, promoting training activities, and disseminating best practice, and working with stakeholders to ensure coordination of efforts across the sector.
It is led by Marcus Munafò (Bristol), Chris Chambers (Cardiff), Laura Fortunato (Oxford), Alexandra Collins (Imperial), and Malcolm Macleod (Edinburgh).
UKRN works across disciplines, ranging from the arts and humanities to the physical sciences, with a particular focus on the biomedical sciences.
We're represented within this consortium by Dr Matthew Parker, our senior lecturer in Behavioural Pharmacology and Neuroscience and group leader of our Brain and Behaviour laboratory. His research work focuses on the exploration of impulsive/compulsive behaviour and maladaptive habits.
ReproducibiliTea is a worldwide collection of journal clubs that regularly meet to discuss papers related to topics associated with the UKRN – including reproducibility, open science, research quality, and good/bad research practices in any field.
The ReproducibiliTea Journal Club in Portsmouth is organised by Gadda Salhab, Harry Mayes, Ismail Abdul Kader, and Lina Hillner. Events take place every other Wednesday at 4.00 pm in King Henry Building, Room 1.05. Please find the current schedule on our twitter account (@Repot_UoP).
