Transparency is integral to the validity of social science research – especially when this research informs policy and affects the lives of millions around the world. Today, researchers are not explicitly rewarded for disclosing their data collection and analysis methods, registering detailed pre-analysis plans, or making data and other research materials available to the public.
In order to promote transparent research, and to offer recognition and visibility to scholars practicing open social science, the John Templeton Foundation is generously supporting the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) to launch prizes named for pioneers who helped lay the foundations of research transparency: economist Edward E. Leamer and psychologist Robert Rosenthal.
