This grant supports the development and organization of two four-day conferences that aim to build consensus within the social scientific community around the need for better data sharing and transparency and to investigate and discuss new approaches for doing so. Berkeley economist Edward Miguel, Director of the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences, will develop and host the conferences, to be held in the summers 2014 and 2015, and will focus on developing common transparency standards for academic publishers and on training early-career social scientists in best practices when conducting empirical research. Additional grant funds support a series of small grants for innovative student demonstration projects to increase adoption of more transparent research practices.
