Michèle Nuijten awarded for Open Social Science

Michèle Nuijten (TSB, Dept. Methodology and Statistics) has been awarded one of nine 2016 Leamer-Rosenthal Prizes for Open Social Science. She will receive the joint award, which includes $ 10,000, for her work developing statcheck, an R package that allows users to find statistical flaws in their analysis.


The prize is an initiative of the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) and will be presented on the Annual Meeting in Berkeley, California on Thursday, 15 December.

BITSS would like to extend its gratitude to the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Tilburg University for their support of Michèle Nuijten as she works toward her degree. You can find more information about the prize, including past winners on the BITSS website.
