Hi all,

We have today published a blog post on eLife Labs about how scientists can
use the dynamic document language, R Markdown, for creating reproducible

At eLife, we aim to make the communication of results more beneficial for
the scientific community as a whole, by operating a platform for presenting
research that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in
science. These ‘responsible behaviours’ include the reproducibility of
research results, which is a cornerstone of science. For example, the
development of new drugs and medical treatments relies on the ability to
replicate the results of preclinical research.

Chris Hartgerink, a metascience researcher at Tilburg University, the
Netherlands, describes how R Markdown provides a simple solution for
creating reproducible manuscripts here: https://elifesciences.org/

If you’d like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
