CESSDA is organised an online workshop entitled “Making Social Science Research Transparent” coordinated by GESIS - Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences on Thursday  11 Nov 2021 from 13:30 -16:45 CET.

High-quality data have the potential to be reused in many ways. Archiving and publishing your data properly is at the core of making your data FAIR and will enable both your future self as well as others to get the most out of your data. Recently, more and more scientific journals are implementing open data policies, leading to researchers' dilemmas about where, when and how to publish the data.

Replicability, reproducibility, questionable research practices, and related issues are becoming increasingly important in the social sciences. A crucial element of that change is research transparency. In this talk, we will present a short overview of some of the elements of research transparency, and their contribution to an open, and credible body of scientific knowledge.

In the second part, we will present in-depth the processes, policies and tools implemented for facilitating transparent research in the social sciences. More information :
