Upcoming Presentations & Workshops

Project TIER is honored to have been invited to participate in multiple upcoming seminars and events to present on the importance of teaching reproducible research methods. These presentations include an overview of ex ante documentation vs ex post reproduction, handling restricted-access data, and undergraduate classroom applications of the TIER protocol. These seminars will be hosted throughout the fall semester, and we encourage the TIER community to take advantage of all the great presentations these webinars will offer.

BITSS Open Research Seminar

Hosted by the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS), a leading organization in replication, this four-part fall seminar includes monthly presentations on a variety of topics in replication. The seminar focuses on tools and practices researchers can use, and is entirely free and open to the public. Presentations will also be available later on the BITSS Youtube Chanel.

Richard Ball (Project TIER), Fernando Hoces de la Guardia (BITSS), and Abel Brodeur (I4R) will be presenting on Oct 4, 9 – 10:30 am PT: The Life Cycle of a Reproduction: from Ex Ante Documentation to Ex Post Reproduction and Beyond. Register Here

Conference on Reproducibility and Replicability in Economics and the Social Sciences

This joint in-person and virtual conference, hosted typically on Tuesday afternoons, features 11 sessions on issues spanning the entire lifecycle of reproducible research. Presentations will include topics such as undergraduate and graduate replication teaching methods, journal replication review processes, and the ethics of reproducibility.

On November 19 at 4:15 ET, Richard Ball (Project TIER) and Diego Mendez-Carbajo (Fed of St. Louis) will join other panelists for Session 3, "Should teaching reproducibility be a part of undergraduate education or curriculum?" Register Here

YSI Webinar on Replication

The Institute for New Economic Thinking Young Scholars Initiative is hosting a multi-session webinar freely available to students of all levels. The sessions will focus on aspects of research replication relevant to students, and provide students with the tools and mentorship they need to complete their first replication study.

On September 15 at 12pm ET Richard Ball and Norm Medeiros will present on Two Sides of the Replication Coin: Ex Post Reproduction and Ex Ante Documentation. Register Here
