Results-Free Peer Review: The Video
Previous posts at TRN have highlighted “results-free peer review” (RFPR) efforts at a variety of journals: see here, here, and here. The journal BMC Psychology recently put together a short (approximately 2 minutes) video discussing their new policy of “results-free peer review.” For those not familiar with RFPR, the video is a nice introduction to the subject.
To the best of TRN’s knowledge, no economics journals do RFPR, though the subject (“results-blind review”) is addressed in Christensen and Miguel’s forthcoming JEL paper, “Transparency, Reproducibility, and the Credibility of Economics Research“. The closest would the AEA’s Randomized Control Trial registry where researchers post their research plans prior to undertaking their data collection and analysis.
