This course will focus on the concept and techniques that allow statisticians/data analysts to ensure as much as possible that their analysis performed using R is reproducible.

Reproducible research in statistical analysis is the idea that it should be possible for other people to reproduce a published data analysis and obtain the same results ("other people" also include the person who did the initial data analysis, 6 months later). While all data analysts agree that the concept of reproducible research is important, very few of them actually take active steps to ensure that their work is reproducible.
