Led by the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS), this Research Transparency and Reproducibility Training (RT2) provides participants with an overview of cutting-edge mechanisms for transparent and reproducible social science research. The curriculum is taught by academic leaders in the transparency movement, and there will be space for collaborative work and hands-on skill building.

Taught by: Edward Miguel (Introduction, Pre-registration and Pre-analysis Plans), Sean Grant and Arnaud Vaganay (Transparent Reporting and Disclosure), Don Moore (Scientific Misconduct and Researcher Degrees of Freedom), Courtney Soderberg (Replication), Eva Vivalt (Meta-Analysis), Erica Baranski (OSF and Hands-On Registration), Danae Roumis (Data Managment and De-Identification), Garret Christensen (Version Control and Dynamic Documents), Harrison Dekker (Version Control), Dan Benjamin (Genoeconomics), and others from the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS, Docker, and Jupyter).

Description
Participants can expect to finish the program with a thorough overview and understanding of best practices for open, reproducible research, allowing them to remain in the vanguard of new scientific frontiers. They are encouraged to bring existing research questions and ideas based on their own interests and seek support and feedback from instructors and other attendees.

Formerly known as the Summer Institute, RT2 will include more hands-on sessions incorporating new tools to facilitate research transparency. In addition to interactive sessions, participants will also be provided a Reading Packet prior to their arrival.

We expect the number of applications to far exceed the number of available spaces for this workshop. With this in mind, BITSS aims to select 30-35 participants that represent a balance across disciplines, gender, and experience levels, as well as participants who are likely to have sustained impact on improving research transparency and reproducibility education and practice at their host institutions.

Eligibility
The workshop is designed for researchers across the social science spectrum, from economics to political science, psychology, and other related disciplines. Ideal candidates include: (i) graduate or post-graduate students (ii) junior faculty, (iii) staff from research organizations interested in using these methods, and (iv) journal editors or research funders curious about the implications for their work. Diversity in terms of background and academic discipline is encouraged.
