Today I would like to introduce the replication network (TRN) to our readers, a network whose purpose is “to encourage economists and their journals to publish replications.” This is all along in line with the purpose of our own project.

The website of the replication network serves as a channel of communication to both update scholars about the state of replications in economics and to establish a network for the sharing  of information and ideas among economists. It offers important information on the possibility to publish replication studies in economics journals and provides lists of publications dealing with the topic of replications in economic research. Also a list of published replication studies is available.

What I also really like is their guest blog, where you can find a lot of interesting posts written by TRN’s members on noumerous topics dedicated to repoducible research in the economic profession. Also the news & event section is very intersting to me, because it reflects many of the news published in newspapers, journals and blogs wich -in a broader sense- all deal with reproducible research.

Therefore, I believe there are many advantages to get involved in TRN. Therefore, don’t hesitate to join TRN as a member – simply because replication is a cornerstone of science đŸ˜‰
