This training aims to contribute to empowering the next generation with the appropriate tools and the road map used to conduct transparent, reproducible, and open research. We will train master’s students, Ph.D. candidates, postdocs, junior faculty, and researchers in Economics, Political Sciences, and Public policy in methods for transparent, open, and reproducible research. The training will be held at the Thomas Sankara University and the Centre d’Etudes, de Documentation et de Recherche Economiques et Sociales (CEDRES) in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Topics will include the theory of Transparency, Reproducibility and Open Science Research, pre-registration and pre-analysis, data and code sharing, data de-identification, data mining, fishing, p-hacking, selective reporting outcomes, and multiple inference correction, replication, and dynamic documents and reproducible workflows. We will tailor and promote the materials and tools used since the RT2 2017 trainings and other resources developed by BITSS.
