Workshops & Events

Tri-Agency Open Access Policy - Requirements and Routes to Compliance - 12:00pm

Under Canada's Tri-Agency Open Access Policy, all journal publications funded by CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC must become freely accessible online within 12 months of publication. Learn how to make your research comply, including Open Access options, self-archiving, and protecting your copyright when signing publisher agreements.


R Study Group - Co-working Project - 3:00pm

Join the R Study Group and work on an ongoing group project - hone your skills in Shiny, Leaflet, API, and time series analysis.

The project is intended to be an ongoing learning opportunity. It combines four key elements:

-Shiny application development
-Leaflet mapping in R
-curl/JSON/API interaction
-Statistical (time series) analysis

The app will use the Trasnlink API to search bus routes & transit hub locations to tell users whether they should 'just walk', or stay and wait for the bus. It's intended to provide a probability density function (or something) that can tell you whether, on average, your travel time is faster staying or waiting.

The repository is called ShouldIStayOrShouldIGo.

Presented by UBC's R Study Group.


Pixelating: A Digital Humanities Mixer - 12:00pm

The Pixelating Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.

Registration: Registration is not required, but will help us plan for space. You can RSVP online, or just drop-in to join us. As this is a brown bag session, please feel free to bring your lunch. Coffee and tea will be available.
