Transparency & Replicability Standards Across the Social Sciences

October 12, 2018


 
 
  
 
 

Conversations about transparency and reproducibility of scientific research are taking place across academia. In the social sciences, some of these conversations are motivated by controversy, while others are driven by more mundane concerns about routine scientific practice and the nature of accumulating evidence. Regardless of the motivation, these conversations tend to take place within disciplinary enclaves or even narrower sub-fields.   Therefore, this conference will seek to help participants better understand the contours of these debates, the solutions under consideration, and the possible negative consequences of those solutions. The conference is designed to be: 1) interdisciplinary, 2) geared towards empirically oriented scholars working in the social sciences, broadly defined, and 3) methodologically inclusive (e.g., ethnographers, historians, quantitative scholars, etc.).   Click here to view the Conference Program
