The journal Energy Economics announced it was putting on a special issue dedicated to replications. While all types of replications are invited, two types are of particular interest. First, replications of older research that has been widely cited or influential in policy making. This type of replication would investigate whether the original results are sustained when newer data are added and/or newer methods are applied. The second type of replication would attempt to reconcile findings from several papers that use similar data but reach different conclusions.
No deadline for the special issue was announced. In addition, Energy Economics also announced that it will now accept replications as a distinct submission type. To learn more, click here.
