Prerequisite: Introduction to R for Absolute Beginners or some experience using R 

This workshop is designed for beginner level R users who want to learn R’s data visualization capability. We will provide an overview of some popular data visualization packages and then go into more detail for some of them including: Base R plotting, lattice, and ggplot2.

Students should bring a laptop and will have plenty of opportunities to do hands-on activities and work on datasets provided by the instructors. Using these R packages, students learn how to make some simple graphs, such as scatterplots, histograms, line charts, boxplots, etc.  After this workshop, students will have the foundation to use these tools to create graphs for their own research data.

This workshop is designed for students focusing on international health. The goal of this hands-on searching workshop is to introduce the participants to discipline specific databases. There are unique records found in Embase, Global Health, and Scopus that are not found in PubMed. By the end of this workshop, students will be able to 1.) Identify steps of an expert search using controlled vocabulary and keywords. 2.) Create searches in four databases to identify relevant international health articles. 3.) Document, save, and organize references. Though the lab has computers, students are welcome to bring their own device since we will be importing and saving searches.

What is the open science movement and what does it mean to a researcher?

In this workshop, we will look at the growing importance of open science and explore the issues surrounding making research and data open. As we discuss definitions, strategies, barriers, and incentives to open research we will also begin to take a look at tools that assist users in working in a transparent and reproducible manner. Specifically, we will demo the Open Science Framework (OSF), a free, open source, online research project management platform and create a personal JHU affiliated account, manage multiple projects, and collaborate, or share with other researchers.

A prime example of a service that promotes reproducibility, we will share more ways to use the OSF to position as a proponent in the open science movement.
