内容摘要:The demands andexpectations for applied researchers have never been higher. With rapid gainsin data resolution and availability, in econometric techniques and computingpower, and in the influence of economists in policy and management circles, itis an exciting time to be an applied economist. But there are darker sides aswell. Many empirical results cannot be replicated, fueling concerns of sloppywork that favors style over substance, is prone to p-hacking, lacks integrity,and sometimes entail outright fraud. Publishing in top journals has never beenharder. In this workshop, we will explore the norms, conventions and ethicalcodes of conduct that help to define good research in this rapidly changingprofessional context.
