Creating Pedagogical Materials to Enhance Research Transparency at UCSD Catalyst Training ProjectInterdisciplinary

Scott Desposato Craig McIntosh

This project involved creating a teaching module by the Policy Design and Evaluation Lab (PDEL) at UC San Diego (UCSD). The module is intended for use in graduate-level social science methodology courses—including those in political science, economics, sociology, and psychology—at UCSD and beyond. It covers the main causes of the credibility crisis in social science, as well as practical solutions for individual researchers to address these issues in their own work.

All materials are available online at PDEL’s GitHub page.
