Training

NIH developed four video modules with accompanying discussion materials that focus on integral components of reproducibility and rigor in the research endeavor, such as bias, blinding, and exclusion criteria. These modules are intended only to stimulate conversation, which may be facilitated by the use of the discussion materials, and are not meant to be comprehensive training modules. They may serve as a foundation upon which to build further education, training, and discussion.

The modules can also be found on the NIGMS Clearinghouse for Training Modules to Enhance Data Reproducibility site, along with other materials once available.
