Presentation in the SSP session on: Helping Journal Editors Establish Data Access and Research Transparency Practices

For several years, a group of scholars and editors in the social sciences have worked to establish data citation and research transparency standards. These were used to launch forward-looking and action-oriented conversations with a broader group of editors regarding how to facilitate and incentivize appropriate data access, and research and analytic transparency. The panel will discuss best practices: the use of persistent identifiers, the role of trusted repositories, the pre-registration of experimental and observational research designs, the incorporation of transparency standards in to journal work flow, the use of active digitally enhanced citations, and replication. This grant funded initiative also works with organizations to help them implement data access and research transparency practices.
