A Hands-on Introduction to Literate Programming

A fundamental challenge for open science is how best to share the code and data used to produce the analysis, tables, and figures contained in a publication. Fortunately, new tools are emerging to address this problem. This workshop will introduce a solution that utilizes widely used open source components. We’ll create a “compilable” document containing text and bibliography, as well as all the code needed to create the graphs and tables. We’ll demonstrate how the process facilitates making revisions when data changes or in response to reviewer recommendation and the ease with which work can be shared pre or post publication. The following tools will be introduced: * RStudio * Markdown * Zotero * BibTex * GitHub Registration is required: http://calendar.library.ucla.edu/event/3495514
