What is the TI?

AAPOR Transparency Initiative logo


AAPOR’s Transparency Initiative is designed to promote methodological disclosure through a proactive, educational approach that assists survey organizations in developing simple and efficient means for routinely disclosing the research methods associated with their publicly-released studies. The Transparency Initiative is an approach to the goal of an open science of survey research by acknowledging those organizations that pledge to practice transparency in their reporting of survey-based research findings. In doing so, AAPOR makes no judgment about the approach, quality or rigor of the methods being disclosed.

Why should my organization join?

Membership in the Transparency Initiative will identify your organization as one that is willing to publicly disclose its basic research methods and make them available for public inspection. It marks your organization as one that values openness and has been formally recognized for your commitment to transparency in research methods.

How does my organization join?

Your organization can apply for Transparency Initiative membership online. We’ve tried to make the application process as easy as possible.

Where can I get more information?

Please reach out to Co-chairs Krista Jenkins and Jennifer Benz For more details regarding the Transparency Initiative, view our Terms & Conditions.
