The workshop will consist of mini-courses covering research transparency, a topic that is often neglected in the conventional economics curriculum, with an emphasis on empirical research and macro models. For young scholars it can be very useful to orient themselves by looking at how established researchers do their studies. Though economics has recently seen an increase in replication materials made publicly available, it is often frustrating to actually replicate analyses since work is poorly documented or poorly organized, or necessary data and code are missing. This workshop intends to help young scholars find out how to replicate others’ studies and how to archive their own research for future use.
