The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) invites applications for replications of influential, innovative, or controversial impact evaluations from its Candidate Studies List. 3ie's Replication Programme will make 5-10 awards of up to $ 15,000 each.
Deadline for submission: 23.59 GMT, July 31, 2012.
The primary objective of the replication programme is to improve the quality of evidence available for development policymaking and programme design.
More specifically, the replication programme seeks to:
- Verify the findings, and examine the robustness of findings, in selected influential, innovative, or controversial impact evaluations of development interventions;
- Improve the incentives of researchers to conduct careful and responsible data analysis.
Completed replications will be published through the 3ie website and working paper series. In addition, a special issue of the Journal of Development Effectiveness will be published containing a selection of studies resulting from this first request for applications.
