Transparency and Integrity in Quantitative Research

Transparency and Integrity in Quantitative Research

Thursday, October 31, 2019 - 2:00 pm

Did you know that some journals or reviewers now prefer or even require that you pre-register your research study before you collect data? Or that you must have a plan to make your data public for federal grants and many journals? Transparency in research has been evolving rapidly in the past several years--you want to make sure you're caught up on the latest best practices. In this workshop, presenters will describe what pre-registration is, why it matters and how to do it (including templates and websites). They will also explain what a data management plan is and what funders are looking for in them, discuss common issues that arise (e.g., privacy) and give you several options for making your data and materials public. This multidisciplinary session will be presented by Helen Harton, Rebecca Rinehart and Ellen Neuhaus. Registration requested.
