September 27, 2022 @ 4:15 p.m. : Conference on Reproducibility and Replicability in Economics and the Social Sciences.  Session 1:  Institutional support:  Should journals verify reproducibility?

Different journals have different approaches towards enforcement of their data availability policies, ranging from a thorough and complete verification including running code and checking the output, to a cursory review of the files provided to make sure they appear satisfactory, to simply receiving the data and code package and archiving it on a website or a repository. What drives the choice of approach? What are the reasons behind such choices?

Panelists: Guido Imbens (Stanford and Econometrica), Tim Salmon (SMU and Economic Inquiry), Toni Whited (University of Michigan and Journal of Financial Economics)

This session will be on Zoom.

October 6 – 7:  tada2022 / Text as Data Conference


The New Directions in Analyzing Text as Data (TADA) meeting is a leading forum for research on the study of politics, society, and culture through computational analysis of documents. Recent advances in NLP have the potential to revolutionize how we study human society. But using these tools effectively, reliably, and equitably requires continuous dialog between experts across computational methods, social science, and the humanities.

TADA 2022 invites applications for research presentations on new work related to text-as-data methods and applications. TADA is an interdisciplinary conference, drawing scholars from across the social sciences, computer and information science, and related fields. Our programs from past meetings (TADA 2018, TADA 2019, and TADA 2021) show the wide range of work presented at our conference.

Deadline for early registration: September 20, 2022
