are very happy to make a few general announcements:
joint MAER-Net effort to assess the scientific credibility, statistically, of
economics has finally come to fruition; free download. As many of you will recall, John Ioannidis, the
very highly-cited Stanford medical researcher, gave the Keynote at the 2014
MAER-Net Colloquium in Athens. Then, we hosted a MAER-Net discussion arouond John’s
“Why Most Published Research Findings are False” and what we might
do about it. This discussion, in turn,
lead to our collaboration with John, “The power of bias in economics
research,” that is now published by The EJ. Our large-scale survey of power and bias across
64,076 economic estimates from 159 areas
of research and 6,700 empirical economic studies could not
have happened without the wide cooperation of the many MAER-Net members who
graciously shared their meta-datasets. Thank
the result of a very successful Colloquium generously hosted by Prof. Jarko
Fidermuc at Zeppelin University, Friedrichshafen, Germany, we have dozens of
next MAER-Net Colloquium will take place Oct 4-5, in Melbourne Australia. We hope to see everyone there.
The 2018 MAER-Net Colloquium at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia!
October 4-5, 2018 hosted by DeLMAR: Deakin Laboratory for the Meta-Analysis of Research, Deakin University, School of Business and Law.
See you right here next year!
