Transparency + Reproducibility Workshop at UC Merced

There is growing interest in research transparency and reproducibility across the social sciences. As part of the UC Merced Political Science professionalization seminar series, this workshop will introduce political science graduate students to the tools social scientists can use to make their research more reproducible.

We will cover recent methodological progress in this area, including study registration, pre-analysis plans, disclosure standards, and open sharing of data and materials, drawing on experiences in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as other social sciences. We will also demo workflow-related software developments that help a researcher make their work more reproducible, particularly version control and dynamic documents, which can accurately track all changes made to code and make one’s entire analysis reproducible with a single click.
