On this page I share some resources that I found useful in some way or another. This page is work in progress, I add sections and resources as I find them.
This is a new topic that I find particularly important. I was lucky to have peers at Maastricht Uni with whom I could have great discussions about research practices, ethics and how to do our research the best we could – big shoutout to Henrik Zaunbrecher and to my amazing coauthors Jan Feld, Nicolás Salamanca and Ulf Zölitz. We talked a lot about the replication crisis and the issue that null-effects papers are less likely to ever be accepted for publication. Here are some resources I’ve found over the years that have nourished my thoughts on this topic, and have helped me progress in my own practices.
and Reproducible Social Science Research by Garret
Christensen, Jeremy Freese, and Edward Miguel. A fantastic introduction
into the issues of the replicability problems, the incentive problems in
modern science and practical advice to improve our research practices to
move forward collectively. It’s also a relatively quick and easy
Institute for Replication is a research lab led by Abel
Brodeur and his team. They do amazing work to normalize replications,
increase awareness around the need for replicating papers, and improving
researchers’ incentives to replicate the work of others and make their
own work more replicable. They have tons of teaching resources to
transmit best practices to students, check out their website!
These are the resources I used to make my own website. I tried different things (Wordpress, Squarespace, Jekyll…), and I find that the easiest way by far to create a static website is to use R and host your page via Github Pages. Github allows you to host your website for free, update it super quickly, and will never bug (unlike those sneaker ruby gem updates for your Jekyll page…) :-) Sure, you could make your page using Google Sites, but making your own page from scratch is much more fun!
