“Transparency, Reproducibility, and Credibility of Economics Research” is a research symposium hosted collaboratively by the World Bank Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) group, BITSS, the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), and Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) on September 10, 2019 at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The Symposium will feature presentations by the host organizations on current methods and innovations to advance transparency and reproducibility in economics, as well as expert panels on the following topics:

  1. Definitions of Reproducibility;
  2. Balancing Open Data and Privacy; and
  3. Practical steps to improved Transparency, Reproducibility and Credibility in Economics.

The goal of these discussions is to achieve common understanding of transparency and reproducibility standards in economics, set expectations for balancing open data and privacy, and ultimately move towards practical steps for research to improve credibility and transparency without imposing undue burdens on researchers.
