Journals in Economic Sciences: Paying Lip-services to Reproducible Research?

The talk focusses on the efforts of journals in economics and business studies in fostering research integrity. We report the findings of an empirical study in which a sample of 346 journals in economics and business studies was examined. One aim of our study was to determine whether these journals support reproducible research by implementing data policies and data archives. Another aim was to analyse the specifications of these data policies and to determine potential differences and commonalities for the two branches of economic research.
In addition, the talk presents the outcome of an evaluation of journals' data archives. In this second study, two issues of each journal equipped with a data policy were checked for accompanying research data. With this additional analysis we aim to estimate whether journals with data policy really enforce data availability.
Based on these studies, the talk provides an overview in recent developments of journals' research data management in economic research. The results indicate that especially journals in economics are in a state of flux.
