Authoring Scientific Publications with R Markdown Workshop

Wed, 12/16/2020 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Thu, 12/17/2020 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Join us for a carpentry-style R Markdown workshop for scientific authoring developed by your own UCSB Carpentry Team. Participants will build on using their R data analysis skills in R Studio by learning how to create R Markdown documents that combine analysis and narrative. R Markdown makes it possible to work on a whole research project from within R Studio in an easily reproducible manner: from data upload, cleaning, and analysis, to writing your paper, adding figures, citations, and bibliography with proper formatting.  R markdown allows you to output your work as .html, .pdf, .docx (among many other formats) to publish your work as a website, paper, etc. This workshop will involve lectures and demos alternating with hands-on exercises, so by the end of the workshop, you will have “authored” a short paper of your own with the data and narrative we provide. 


Prerequisite: Some familiarity with R Studio is encouraged before participating in this workshop.
