Update on the "Series of Unsurprising Results in Economics"

In June of last year I had a post about a new journal, Series of Unsurprising Results in Economics (SURE).

If you didn't get to read that post, I urge you to do so. 

More importantly, you should definitely take a look at this piece by Kelsey Piper, from a couple of days ago, and titled, "This economics journal only publishes results that are no big deal - Here’s how that might save science".

Kelsey really understands the rationale for SURE, and the important role that it can play in terms of reducing publication bias, and assisting with replicating results.

You can get a feel for what SURE has to offer by checking out this paper  by Nick Huntington-Klein and Andrew Gill that they are publishing.

We'll all be looking forward to more excellent papers like this!
