Online Course: Good Scientific Practice and Reproducible Research

In cooperation with the Chair of Digital Economics at the University of Hamburg, the ZBW offers a course entitled Good Scientific Practice and Reproducible Research.

The course will clarify what good scientific practice in economics looks like (with a focus on quantitative empirical research). It also discusses how to make your own research reproducible. This is important because economics journals and research funders increasingly require that project-related data and analyses be published. This is to facilitate the verifiability of research results and to enable the subsequent use of the data.

In the online seminar, we show how programme codes and research data should be structured and prepared according to the guidelines of renowned journals. We give an overview of the requirements of the most important funders, various journals and publishers as well as learned societies in economics.

Last but not least, you are invited to perform a reproduction or replication yourself.

The event is organised by the University of Hamburg as part of the WiSo doctoral programme in cooperation with the ZBW.

The dates of the seminar are as follows:

  • Fr., 24.11.23, 10:00-16:00 CET
  • Sat., 25.11.23, 10:00-14:00 CET
  • Fr., 19.01.24, 09:00-max 18:00 CET (only for those wishing to present own replications)

You will receive a link for online participation shortly before the seminar begins.
