There is a growing demand across the natural, health, and social sciences for research to be made transparent, with data and analytic methods being publicly available. This workshop, led by Sebastian Karcher, Research Assistant Professor of Political Science at Syracuse University and Associate Director of the Qualitative Data Repository, will begin by providing a short overview of recent debates around research transparency, focusing on the theoretical and practical justifications for transparency and data sharing. The bulk of the workshop will provide hands-on advice on how to conduct transparent research, focusing on data management practices that facilitate transparent research with a particular focus on social sciences. Topics covered will include writing effective data management plans, working with IRBs, best practices for organizing and storing files, and sharing data. The workshop is intended for graduate students and postdocs conducting or planning to conduct empirical research, regardless of methodology or subject area.
