CALLING ALL ECONOMISTS! Come To Melbourne and Predict the Reproducibility of Social Science Research. Travel Grants Available.
The repliCATS Project is part of a monumental effort to estimate the replicability of 3,000 published social science research claims. Towards that end, it is sponsoring a one-day workshop in Melbourne, Australia on November 6th. Participants will work in small groups of 5-6 to evaluate approximately a dozen social and behavioral research claims. Each group will have its own facilitator to guide them through a structured assessment protocol.
To help defray costs, travel grants of $400 USD will be made available to participants. In addition, those who wish to stay on and attend the following AIMOS conference (November 7-8) will have their registration costs waived.
The project is currently looking for economists to join its team of other social science researchers.
