BITSS held its fifth Annual Meeting on December 15-16, 2016 in Berkeley, California to bring together leaders from academia, scholarly publishing, and policy to strengthen the standards of transparency and reproducibility across social science disciplines. The meeting featured keynote speakers, an announcement of the 2016 Leamer-Rosenthal Prizes for Open Social Science, results from selected Social Science Meta-Analysis and Research Transparency (SSMART) grants, and selected research from the now closed call for papers.
We also held a screening of “(Dis)Honesty – the Truth About Lies,” followed by a Q&A with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Yael Melamede. Read more about the film here: http://thedishonestyproject.com/
