With the aim of improving the computational reproducibility of the research they publish and fund, journals and funders are increasingly calling for published research to include associated data and code. However, computational reproducibility has long been time-consuming and technically challenging to achieve for researchers. Institutions and libraries can advance reproducibility through adoption of new tools and approaches for researchers that help prepare and publish code and data for easy reuse. In this webinar, we introduce reproducibility best practices and resources that are applicable across disciplines. Finally, we will demonstrate tools that help researchers overcome barriers to reproducibility including how to share their code and data using Code Ocean.
