Call for Papers on Research Transparency

BITSS will be holding its 3rd annual conference at UC Berkeley on December 11-12, 2014. The goal of the meeting is to bring together leaders from academia, scholarly publishing, and policy to strengthen the standards of openness and integrity across social science disciplines.

This Call for Papers focuses on work that elaborates new tools and strategies to increase the transparency and reproducibility of research. A committee of reviewers will select a limited number of papers to be presented and discussed. Topics for papers include, but are not limited to:

  • Pre-registration and the use of pre-analysis plans;
  • Disclosure and transparent reporting;
  • Replicability and reproducibility;
  • Data sharing;
  • Methods for detecting and reducing publication bias or data mining.
Papers or long abstracts must be submitted by Friday, October 10th (midnight Pacific time) through CEGA’s Submission Platform. Travel funds may be provided for presenters. Eligible submissions include completed papers or works in progress.

The 2014 BITSS Conference is organized by the Center for Effective Global Action and co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
