In our analyses for work package 2 we collected some criteria to evaluate the quality of the data policies we found in our sample.
It was important to identify some core requirements that aim to ensure the replicability of economic research. This was not an easy task, because we had to find some criteria that are suitable for many fields of research in economics.
Therefore we consulted several research papers and used the recommendations we found in the papers as a basis for analysing and assessing the suitability of data availability policies of economics journals in our study.
We’d like to discuss these criteria with our readers. Feel free to submit comments or send me an e-mail.
