BITSS 2013 Annual Meeting

This year’s convening featured presentations of several recent and promising efforts to increase transparency in economics, political science, psychology, and biostatistics. During this day and a half, a packed room of academics, funders, and journal editors discussed different strategies to increase the coordination among transparency initiatives, promote knowledge-sharing and innovation, and foster the adoption of effective transparency tools by the research community.

The conference was hosted by the Center for Effective Global Action, and supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, and the Center for Open Science.
