Replication and Data Research Transparency
APSA has long been attentive to and concerned about replication and data research transparency. We have made available two large symposia, both published in PS, concerning replication and data research transparency. The first symposium, published in 1995, includes Gary King’s often cited article "Replication, Replication." The second symposium, published in 2014, is Openness in Social Science Research, and includes many articles on this topic as well as replication. Read more.
