9 Reproducible Research things - Building Business Continuity https://dresa.org.au/materials/9-reproducible-research-things-building-business-continuity The idea that you can duplicate an experiment and get the same conclusion is the basis for all scientific discoveries. Reproducible research is data analysis that starts with the raw data and offers a transparent workflow to arrive at the same results and conclusions. However not all studies are replicable due to lack of information on the process. Therefore, reproducibility in research is extremely important. Researchers genuinely want to make their research more reproducible, but sometimes don’t know where to start and often don’t have the available time to investigate or establish methods on how reproducible research can speed up every day work. We aim for the philosophy “Be better than you were yesterday”. Reproducibility is a process, and we highlight there is no expectation to go from beginner to expert in a single workshop. Instead, we offer some steps you can take towards the reproducibility path following our Steps to Reproducible Research self paced program.

Data Storytelling

Nowadays, more information created than our audience could possibly analyse on their own! A study by Stanford professor Chip Heath found that during the recall of speeches, 63% of people remember stories and how they made them feel, but only 5% remember a single statistic. So, you should convert...

Data Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/materials/data-storytelling Nowadays, more information created than our audience could possibly analyse on their own! A study by Stanford professor Chip Heath found that during the recall of speeches, 63% of people remember stories and how they made them feel, but only 5% remember a single statistic. So, you should convert your insights and discovery from data into stories to share with non-experts with a language they understand. But how? This tutorial helps you construct stories that incite an emotional response and create meaning and understanding for the audience by applying data storytelling techniques. m.yamaguchi@griffith.edu.au a.miotto@griffith.edu.au data storytelling, data visualisation support masters phd researcher

Use the Trove Newspaper & Gazette Harvester (web app version) https://dresa.org.au/materials/use-the-trove-newspaper-gazette-harvester-web-app-version-to-download-large-quantities-of-digitised-articles This video shows how you can use the web app version of the [Trove Newspaper & Gazette Harvester](https://glam-workbench.net/trove-harvester/) to download large quantities of digitised newspaper articles from Trove. Just give it a search from the Trove web interface, and the harvester will save the metadata of all the articles from the search results in a CSV (spreadsheet) file for further analysis. You can also save the full text of every article, as well as copies of the articles as JPG images, and even PDFs. The GLAM Workbench is a collection of tools, examples, tutorials, and apps that help you make use of collection data from GLAM organisations (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums).

Using the latest version of [QueryPic](https://glam-workbench.net/trove-newspapers/#querypic), we can explore the complete result set, showing how the number of matching articles changes over time. We can even compare queries to visualise changes in language or technology. It's a great way to start exploring the possibilities of GLAM data.
