Survey on Transparency in Research

You are invited to a voluntary online survey regarding your opinions on Pre-Analysis Plans and Pre-Registration. To improve transparency in research, these might become mandatory at one point and it is of the essence to stay abreast of current research guidelines. Conversations are taking place requesting all researchers who use data, regardless of primary/secondary or experimental/observational data, to improve clarity and transparency in all stages of analysis. Your opinion matters as your response can guide the development of both concepts in your research field. The implications of these concepts on researchers in the area of agricultural, environmental, resource, and development economics are not well understood. Results from the study will inform researchers and research institutions, which may ultimately benefit researchers, such as yourself.

The survey takes about 15-20 minutes and is open until May 31, 2021. We recommend to open the survey on a computer. To access the study please click:;!!KGKeukY!iI9uW4fKE7nc9Q2EcRVRsmY0TObCTcTN2rL0tQ3iLEkJdglInh_QAT3O-_44ZKfnPQ$
