ReplicationWiki:Terms of Service
Replication in Economics
For scientific progress, it is pivotal to control research findings by independently reproducing results, thus making the findings more reliable. However, in econometric research, this is rarely done and is not yet common practice. By teaching replication to students, we plan to replicate a large number of studies. This process will raise awareness of the need for replications, provide a basis for research about the reasons why replications so often fail and how this can be changed, and educate future generations of economists about how to make research replicable. We invite every economist to join us.
