Reliable Research in Business is an initiative from the University of Florida Warrington College of Business to address credibility challenges across the Science of Organizations and other social, behavioral and economic sciences. This initiative identifies possible solutions in research reproducibility, replicability, generalizability and peer review.

In order to promote robust and reliable research across the Science of Organizations, academic journal editors, university faculty members, academic researchers and students presented their recommendations for best practices for scientific research at a workshop hosted by Department of Management at the University of Florida. Workshop speakers’ presentations can be accessed by researchers and the public alike.

The project is funded by the National Science Foundation, Division of Social and Economic Sciences (Award #1743044) and the Warrington College of Business at the University of Florida.
