The Future of Published Papers: Improving Reproducibility Practices for USGS Publications


About Alex

Alex is currently studying at Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood, CO for her A.S in biology. She plans to transfer to CU Boulder to obtain an undergraduate degree in evolutionary biology and ecology. She enjoys travelling the world and researching coral reefs. During the Geo-Launchpad internship, Alex was working with USGS to assess published USGS approved publications for reproducibility factors. The goal of this project was to demonstrate how open access for scientific publications has changed in USGS, since several policies were enacted in 2016.
