Our Story

What We Do

We consolidate expertise about reproducibility tools and best practices and provide that expertise to current researchers in the form of workshops, handouts, articles, posters and other materials. We enable researchers to adopt best practices in reproducibility, and to teach others.

Who We Are

The group is a collaboration between volunteers in research, industry, and startups in the area of reproducibility and includes people from five continents.

Our History

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.

  • Support from CZI & Hire a Coordinator

    November 2020

    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.

  • Our New Website Goes Live

    Late June 2019

    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!

  • We Run a Twitter Campaign #ReproducibilityWeekR4E

    Middle June 2019

    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.

  • Work Starts on Our New Materials

    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.

  • We Run Workshops and Appoint a Content Manager

    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!

  • Apply for Mozilla Mini-Grant

    December 2018

    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!

  • A Busy Year!

    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.

  • Reproducibility for Everyone is Founded

    Late 2017

    A small team (consisting of members of the eLife Early-Career Advisory Group (ECAG),, 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.
