Introduction: So let me begin by introducing myself. I'm Willem; I'm an assistant professor in the social psychology department. Some of you know me, either due to teaching activities or PhD defense parties, or, and this one is more likely, me lurking around in your department. The reason for that is that besides wanting to be a psychologist, I'm also a wannabe methodologist. I actually got pretty close to doing my PhD in this department since I applied for a position here and got invited for an interview, but then I was offered the job in social psychology and decided to take that. Which was probably a smart move since I think I might've been competing with Michele! Nevertheless, I've been on the lookout for excuses to get involved with this department but for a long period I don't think I had a good excuse; until perhaps now.
I want to talk to you about tidystats. tidystats is an R package, but it's quickly becoming more than that. In fact, the main idea behind tidystats is that it is a workflow that enables researchers to share and report the output of their statistical analyses. This, I think, solves some problems we have with regards to the output of the statistics we do.
My talk today is organized in two parts. In the first part I will explain why I developed tidystats; so which problems it solves, and in the second part I will show you how it works. So this talk is also partly a workshop.
If you have a questions or comment, feel free to ask or comment away.
