Roundtable discussion: Transparent methods, pre-registration, and replications in Political Science
Where and When: Thursday, February 18, from 11:30am to 1pm on Zoom.
About: Many disciplines in the social sciences face a ‘credibility crisis’. In response to such crises, the Open Science movement is promoting research practices that are more transparent. In political science, there is a clear trend towards more transparent and replicable research. More and more journals are requiring the pre-registration of experimental work and a few journals are already publishing registered reports. Given these rapid changes, this roundtable discussion will draw attention to the need for transparent and replicable research, and talk about best practices and ways to implement the recommendations from the Open Science movement. The participants to this roundtable discussion have ample experience with pre-registration and pre-registered reports themselves, for experimental and observational work.
