Workshop at the UK Cognitive Linguistics Conference 2020

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


A three-hour workshop with the following title and content.

Open Data and Reproducibility v2.0

The methods for disseminating research in cognitive linguistics, and other fields, are advancing. Papers now include more and more supplementary materials. This shift has been facilitated by burgeoning technologies and available training. Another major contributor was the replication crisis in psychology. Nowadays, researchers customarily examine the extra materials with new studies. These materials are available to non-academics, too. Standard supplementals could be dubbed Open Data and Reproducibility, Version 1. Excitingly, updated features are already available, largely based on open-source software. Let’s look at some applications using R.

Pablo Bernabeu will conduct this workshop, which uses real code of varying complexity within cognitive linguistics. Each of the three sections below include hands-on practice, allowing participants to get acquainted with common challenges and even to create some output.

Binder (20 min) — Did you know that you can enable public access to your data and analysis code in RStudio, on a simple internet browser? There are various options for this (e.g., Jupyter Notebooks or RStudio Cloud), but the most accessible one is Binder (https://mybinder.org). We’ll look at Binder’s requirements and possibilities.

R Markdown (40 min) — Set your input and output in stone, beautifully, with R Markdown (https://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/).
Examples: https://github.com/rstudio/pagedown

Dashboards (2 hours) — On a further step in reproducible, open data, we will learn how to publish dashboards online presenting data in the form of plots and tables. These all-reproducible dashboards are displayed as websites; thus, they can include hyperlinks and downloadable files. Some of the R packages used are ‘rmarkdown’, ‘knitr,’ ‘ggplot,’ ‘plotly,’ ‘flexdashboard,’ and ‘shiny.’ The aim is to practise with different forms of dashboards (Flexdashboard, Shiny, Flexdashboard-Shiny) and the suitable hosting platforms (personal website, RPubs, Binder, Shinyapps, and custom servers).

Basic and advanced R users welcome.

Essential: Laptop with R (https://www.r-project.org/) and RStudio (https://rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/) installed.

Suggested: having some data and R code ready, preferably on Github.
