Since late 2017 we have been working hard to provide resources that make it easier for researcher to know where to start with reproducibility. Below are some milestones along the journey.
R4E receives a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative! Over the next 2 years, R4E will use the support to reach more researchers, achieve sustainability, and lay the foundation for inclusive governance.

Finally, after several months of hard work, we have this new website. We are really eager to get your feedback. Please let us know if something isn't working or if you can't find information. We would also like to hear about positive experiences!

In the lead up to the next round of workshops we run a two-week long Twitter Campaign to create awareness of Reproducibility for Everyone, reproducibility resources, and more. Follow us at @repro4everyone and find #ReproducibilityWeekR4E.
April - June 2019
New templates are developed for our slides and posters, all our materials are moved to a new Google Team Drive, and eLife Ambassadors start translating materials into several languages.
January - March 2019
The year started with a bang. We ran some workshops and was informed that our application for a Mozilla Mini-Grant was successful!
We applied for a Mozilla Mini-Grant! If our application is successful, we will use the money to help fund some workshops around the globe. We will also appoint someone to help us develop a new website and to make our materials more accessible to others. Fingers crossed!
January - December 2018
We held six workshops, with eLife Ambassadors being involved in 4 of them, in Australia, Canada and the United States, reaching over 200 people in person and inspiring thousands online.
A small team (consisting of members of the eLife Early-Career Advisory Group (ECAG), Protocols.io, Addgene and Code Ocean) came together in late 2017 to develop and deliver 1–2 hour long workshops at conferences and universities to reach out to our target audience of life science students, postdocs, PIs, and other interested researchers.
