Original authors FAQ


  1. Why is my study being reproduced/replicated?
    Because your study was published in a top journal.
    We aim to systematically reproduce all empirical studies published in the following journals: American Economic Review, American Economic Review Insights, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Economic Policy and Macroeconomics, American Journal of Political Science, Canadian Journal of Economics, Economic Journal, Review of Economic Studies and State Politics & Policy Quarterly. We will also reproduce a limited number of studies in other leading outlets depending on budget and funding.
    For replication, our editorial board actively recruits replicators for the following journals: American Economic Review, American Economic Review Insights, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Economic Policy and Macroeconomics, American Journal of Political Science, Economic Journal and Review of Economic Studies.

  2. Will my co-author(s) and I have a chance to reply to the replicator’s report?
    Yes, we will email you the replicator’s report and disseminate your answer along the report simultaneously here. We will provide a reasonable amount of time to allow you to draft an answer, after which we will post the replicator's report.
