MAER Network

What's New

We are very happy to make a few general announcements:

  1. A 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 you! 

  2. As the result of a very successful Colloquium generously hosted by Prof. Jarko Fidermuc at Zeppelin University, Friedrichshafen, Germany, we have dozens of new members! 

  3. The 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!
