It's that the process by which we state a question, explore data, conduct formal modeling, interpret results, and communicate findings, is a difficult process to generalize and abstract. Fundamentally, data analysis is an art. It is not yet something that we can easily automate. Exploratory Data Analysis… by Roger D. Peng. Report Writing for Data… by Roger D. Peng. This book teaches the concepts and tools behind reporting modern data analyses in a reproducible manner.

Report Writing for Data… by Roger D. Peng

Reproducibility is the idea that data analyses should be published or made available with their data and software code so that others may verify the findings and build upon them. The need for reproducible report writing is increasing dramatically as data analyses become more complex, involving larger datasets and more sophisticated computations. Reproducibility allows for people to focus on the actual content of a data analysis, rather than on superficial details reported in a written summary. An Introduction to R.
