Data Access and Research Transparency in the Quantitative Tradition

Publication Abstract

Lupia, Arthur, and George C. Alter. 2014. "Data Access and Research Transparency in the Quantitative Tradition." Political Science and Politics, 47(1): 54-59.

The number of people conducting scientific analyses and the number of topics being studied are higher than ever. At the same time, there are questions about the public value of social scientific endeavors, particularly of federally funded quantitative research (Prewitt 2013). In this article, we contend that data access and research transparency are essential to the public value of the enterprise as a whole and to the credibility of the growing number of individuals who conduct such research (also see Esterling 2013).
