Video: Implementing Increased Transparency and Reproducibility in Economics — Lars Vilhuber

On June 27th, BITSS hosted two virtual sessions on research reproducibility at the 95th Annual Conference of the Western Economic Association International (WEAI). The sessions presented resources and lessons learned from the Accelerating Computation Reproducibility in Economics (ACRE) project led BITSS and AEA Data Editor Lars Vilhuber.

Lars Vilhuber (Data Editor, American Economic Association) described the context in which current discussions around replicability in the social sciences are occurring, the motivation behind the recent focus on pre-publication reproducibility, and the lessons learned so far. As Data Editor responsible for pre-publication reproducibility for 8 journals, Dr. Vilhuber delivered practical recommendations for creating reproducible research. The solutions to these problems will change the way research will be taught and conducted, in economics in particular, and in the social sciences more broadly. The implications affect undergraduate and graduate teaching, research infrastructure, and habits.For more information, see the event page: https://www.bitss.org/events/bitss-presentations-on-computational-reproducibility-in-economics-at-the-virtual-95th-weai-annual-conference/
