Deadline Coming Up for BITSS Summer Institute!

Applications for the first BITSS Summer Institute (June 2-5, 2014 – Berkeley, CA) are due by Wednesday, March 26. The workshop will inform participants about the latest trends in the shift towards increased transparency in the social sciences, providing an overview of new tools and techniques for rigorous research in economics, political science, psychology, and related disciplines. Topics covered include the theory and implementation of pre-analysis plans; building reproducible knowledge; emerging techniques to carry out meta-analyses; tools for data sharing, management, publication and curation; strategies to deal with “p-hacking” and publication bias; and the use and implementation of version control systems. Applicants must submit a CV and cover letter via the ICPSR Summer Program Portal. Stipends for travel and accommodation will be available for a limited number of accepted participants.
