Research Transparency Workshop Catalyst Training ProjectInterdisciplinary

Zacharie Dimbuene

This workshop will familiarize social science researchers with research transparency in both teaching practices and research. Workshop activities will include (1) organizing file structures, (2) creating understandable variable labels and value codes, as well as connecting variables to survey instruments through consistent labels and codebook creation, (3) version control of code and data, and (4) creating and maintaining documentation files about surveys and data, as well as data cleaning steps. An Open Discussion will also be organized, bringing together researchers from various disciplines. Topics to be addressed include, pre-registration, pre-analysis plans, reporting guidelines, sharing data and code, and other practices (e.g., Open Science Framework) that enable reproducible research.
