The Replication Window funds internal replication studies of impact evaluations of development interventions.
This funding mechanism aims to increase the incentives for conducting replication and to improve the quality of evidence available for programme and policy design. To this end, the Replication Window funds researchers to conduct replication studies, quality assures those studies, and promotes good practices around communication and data availability. Accepted replications are eligible for publication in the Replication Paper Series.
The Replication Programme has funded ten replications through the first and second rounds of the window (Replication Window 1 and Replication Window 2). To see the current status of these studies as well as 3ie’s in-house replication studies please visit the Replication Studies Status Page.
A fourth replication window is expected to be launched relatively soon. Replication Window 4 will be open to all development sectors and not have a thematic focus.
Replication Windows 1 and 2
3ie’s Replication Programme has funded ten internal replication studies through its first and second Replication Windows. These windows are currently closed.
Information on the progress of all funded replication studies can be found here.

3ie had invited applications for replications of influential, innovative and controversial impact evaluations from its Candidate Studies List.
