New Exercise: Employment Discrimination Lab

Matthew Platt's reproducibility exercise built on R/RStudio/R Markdown is now available in the Soup-to-Nuts Exercises section of the web site.



Congratulations to Project TIER collaborator Jason McCarley (Oregon State University) and his colleague Yusuke Yamani on the publication of their paper, "Psychometric Curves Reveal Three Mechanisms of Vigilance Decrement." McCarley and Yamani provide all of their research materials on the OSF for scholars to review and reuse.


Teaching Reproducible Research and Open Science Conference

Organized by Aneta Piekut (Sheffield Methods Institute/TIER Executive Committee), Jenni Adams (University of Sheffield Library) and Project TIER, this in-person event features a one-day symposium, a workshop on teaching transparent methods of empirical research, and individual/small group consultations with Project TIER Directors Richard Ball and Norm Medeiros.


YOU ARE INVITED... learn about teaching reproducible methods of quantitative research.

Check out a new paper by four Project TIER collaborators, titled "An Invitation to Teaching Reproducible Research: Lessons from a Symposium." The article synthesizes the lessons that emerged from the spring 2021 symposium on "Teaching Reproducible Research: Lessons from a Symposium", hosted by Project TIER, the Sheffield Methods Institute, and the UK Reproducibility Network.


Announcing: Launch of New TIER Protocol Version 4.0

The 4.0 version of the TIER Protocol provides more advanced guidance on folder structure and working with relative paths to ensure a portable, automatic, and fully replicable project. With a streamlined presentation format, this version of the TIER protocol provides more information and is easier to follow than ever.
