ReproducibiliTea is an interdisciplinary journal club for all things related to research transparency and reproducibility started in Oxford and since spread to 14 countries! The new Princeton ReproducibiliTea chapter is one of only a handful of groups in the US meeting to discuss readings and how research reproducibility plays out in our own experiences.


This semester we will be meeting most Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in Peretsman Scully Hall 411. Coffee, tea, and refreshments will be provided!
