<strong>Presented at the Open Science in Practice Summer School (https://osip2017.epfl.ch/page-145979.html) <br><br></strong>September 2017<strong><br><br>Abstract</strong>: This talk will discuss the perceived and actual barriers experienced by researchers attempting to do reproducible research, and give practical guidance on how they can be overcome. It will include suggestions on how to make your code and data available and usable for others (including a strong suggestion to document it clearly so you don't have to reply to lots of email questions from future users). Dr Kirstie Whitaker will present example publications from the <a href="http://nspn.org.uk/">Neuroscience in Psychiatry Network</a> and discuss how the consortium has overcome challenges related to maintaining the privacy of our participants, complying with institutional ethical review boards, and building skills for individual researchers. She will encourage summer school participants to take steps towards ensuring that their publications are as open and reproducible as possible. The take home message will be: every little counts, and every journey starts with a single step.
