We are developing an initiative aimed at promoting replications of quantitative work in political science. The initiative aims to create a site that will publish and organize replications done by graduate students in their courses. By “replications,” we refer to conducting re-analyses using the original data/code, as well as robustness checks.
We are now laying groundwork for the project, supported by a planning grant from the Sloan Foundation. In this phase, we have several goals, including 1. Gathering detailed information about replications performed in methods courses and other graduate work 2. Forming a network of professors who would be interested in encouraging their students to share their replications on the site.
