This DIME event will be held at the World Bank in Washington D.C. It will be a research-oriented symposium focusing on practical application of methods for transparency, reproducibility and credibility in economics research. The event is collaboratively organized by DIME, 3ie, BITSS (CEGA), IPA, and J-PAL.
These organizations will lead discussions focused on their own successes and challenges in adapting research products to respond to these challenges using tools like funding arrangements, IRB requirements, and quality control in research and publication. Researchers and practitioners will participate in discussion-oriented panel talks about how the transparency agenda impacts their work and how to improve expectations and practices as a discipline. These discussions will focus on coming to a common understanding of research reproducibility; setting expectations for balancing open data and privacy; and moving towards practical steps for research to improve credibility and transparency without imposing undue burdens on researchers.
