Show me the data: research reproducibility for qualitative methods
Thursday 5th July, 11:15 - 12:45

In quantitative methods, reproducibility is held as the gold standard for demonstrating research integrity. But, threats to scientific integrity, such as fabrication of data and results have led to some journals now requiring data, syntax and prior registration of hypotheses to be made available as part of the peer-review. While qualitative research reproducibility has been questioned in the past, it has been protected from the recent transparency agenda. But for how long? What if journals mandate the sharing of data and analysis for qualitative research?
A panel of speakers will debate how such ‘reproducibility’ approaches and standards might look.
