Social Science Reproduction Platform (SSRP)

The Social Science Reproduction Platform (SSRP) aims to improve the computational reproducibility of social science research, hence the ability to reproduce the results, tables, and other figures found in research articles using data, code, and materials made available by authors. The platform is meant to be used in combination with the Guide for Accelerating Computational Reproducibility (ACRe Guide), which includes detailed steps and criteria for assessing and improving reproducibility. The SSRP represents a more nuanced approach to reproducibility than “reproducible” or “not reproducible” because reproducers analyse individual claims and their associated display items.

SSRP was developed as part of the Accelerating Computational Reproducibility in Economics (ACRE) project led by the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) in collaboration with the AEA Data Editor.
