This one-day meeting brought together a select group of researchers from across disciplines - including Economics, Political Science, Psychology and Statistics - to discuss the use of pre-analysis plans and study registries. The goal of the meeting was to understand the promise, as well as limitations, of recent developments in this area across different social science disciplines, and discuss possible ways forward.
This event was by invitation only.
