Documenting research activities

  • Detailed procedures should be documented throughout any ongoing research activities, including subject recruitment procedures, subject running procedures, analysis plans, and readme’s for any code base. Documentation should be sufficient to allow a new researcher or research coordinator to be able to understand any ongoing research procedures with minimal (ideally no) additional guidance from other research staff.
  • This documentation should be ready to be made available to Dr. Poldrack or other lab members at any time, preferably via an online platform such as Google Docs.
