Replication and Data Research Transparency (DA-RT)
Providing appropriate access to evidence, and research transparency or interpretability, are among the most important topics in the social sciences today. Recent discussions of implementation of guidelines in social science journals are engaging many APSA members and revealing many compelling views. Therefore, we provide a variety of materials to inform this vital discussion. Read the presidents’ statement on implementation of guidelines in the APSR.
