Les recherches empiriques en sciences humaines et sociales necessitent la manipulation de nombreux fichiers : differents jeux de donnees, de multiples programmes, qu'ils soient destines a la manipulation de donnees, aux traitements statistiques, aux estimations econometriques ou a des simulations, et de nombreux fichiers successifs de resultats. Maitriser l'ensemble des etapes du projet de recherche est indispensable si l'on souhaite pouvoir reproduire ou repliquer les resultats a long terme… 

The Economics of Research Reproducibility

Empirical evidence documents a relatively low level of research reproducibility in economics. In this paper, we investigate why this is the case and what can be done to move out of this

Toward a FAIR Reproducible Research

It is shown here that despite the efforts made by researchers to improve the reproducibility of their research, the initial goals of RR remain mostly unmet, and it is presented how the research process, from data collection to paper publication, could be reorganized and introduced some already available tools and initiatives.

Successes and Struggles with Computational Reproducibility: Lessons from the Fragile Families Challenge

The authors describe their approach to enabling computational reproducibility for the 12 articles in this special issue of Socius about the Fragile Families Challenge, and draw on two tools commonly used by professional software engineers but not widely used by academic researchers: software containers and cloud computing.

Reproducibility Certification in Economics Research

It is shown that external certification can accommodate research based on confidential data and significantly enriches the peer-review process, without adding an extra burden on journals or unduly lengthening the publication process.

On reproducible econometric research

It is argued that the emergence of new tools, particularly in the open-source community, have greatly eased the burden of documenting and archiving both empirical and simulation work in econometrics.

Time Series Econometrics using Microfit 5.0: A User's Manual

This comprehensive and accessible manual outlines and explains all of Microfit's features and functionality and is a valuable resource in its own right for those new to Microfit and those who want to use and understand its more advanced features.

Teaching Replication in Quantitative Empirical Economics

This project builds the basis for the first replicable review paper on reblicability as it gives account of which studies were tested and which results were found in each case and invites for discussion to develop standards for how to make research replicable and how to write replication studies.

The Meaning of Failed Replications: A Review and Proposal

Economists are increasingly using publicly shared data and code to check each other’s work, an exercise often called ‘replication’ testing. But this much-needed trend has not been accompanied by a

Incentives for Replication in Economics

Why replication is so rare and changes to the incentives to replicate are proposed are proposed and a new model for the journals to take over replication post acceptance and prepublication is outlined that would solve the incentive problems raised in this paper.

Statistical Analyses and Reproducible Research

This article describes a software framework for both authoring and distributing integrated, dynamic documents that contain text, code, data, and any auxiliary content needed to recreate the computations in data analyses, methodological descriptions, simulations, and so on.

Using Electoral Cycles in Police Hiring to Estimate the Effects of Police on Crime : Reply

Justin McCrary (2002) demonstrates that a paper of mine on the subject of elections, police, and crime published in this journal (Levitt, 1997) suffers from programming and classiŽ cation errors. It

Does high public debt consistently stifle economic growth? A critique of Reinhart and Rogoff

Herndon, Ash and Pollin replicate Reinhart and Rogoff and find that coding errors, selective exclusion of available data, and unconventional weighting of summary statistics lead to serious errors

Verifying the Solution from a Nonlinear Solver: A Case Study

The article was to provide a four-part methodology for verifying the solution from a nonlinear solver: check the gradient, examine the trace, analyze the Hessian, and profile the likelihood, and concluded that the solution found was, at best, a tentative solution.
