BITSS will hold its fifth Annual Meeting on December 15-16, 2016 in Berkeley, California to bring together leaders from academia, scholarly publishing, and policy to strengthen the standards of transparency and reproducibility across social science disciplines. The meeting will feature keynote speakers, an announcement of the 2016 Leamer-Rosenthal Prizes for Open Social Science, results from selected Social Science Meta-Analysis and Research Transparency (SSMART) grants, and selected research from the now closed call for papers. We will also hold a film screening of The (Dis)Honesty Project with a Q&A after with Academy Award winning producer and director Yael Melamede.
The 2016 BITSS Annual Meeting will be supported in part by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the John Templeton Foundation, and an anonymous donor.
