Workshops in Transparency for Social Science

The Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) was established in 2012 to strengthen the quality of social science research and evidence used for policy-making. The initiative aims to enhance the practices of economists, psychologists, political scientists, and other social scientists in ways that promote research transparency, reproducibility, and openness. BITSS is spearheaded by a distinguished, interdisciplinary group of faculty members across 10 academic institutions that provide thought leadership for the “open social science” movement. Under their guidance, the initiative is generating high quality research through a strong network that uses and generates a library of educational materials.
