ECON 396: Resources for Economics Thesis Writers (HC): Research Data Management
The culminating experience in the economics major is the senior thesis, written as part of a year-long senior research seminar. Students conduct original and independent economics research under the guidance of one of the economics faculty members.
The TIER Documentation Protocol provides instructions for organizing data, statistical code, and associated files in such a way that an empirical research project can be reproduced easily and exactly. The Protocol is embodied in this template on the Center for Open Science's OSF platform that you can use to manage your thesis files throughout the year. Another option for redundant cloud storage is Haverford's Box service. Both OSF and Box offer unlimited storage.
