Daniel Lakens: Power of replications in the Reproducibility Project

Nice take.

For now, it means 35 out of 97 replicated effects have become quite a bit more likely to be true. We have learned something about what predicts replicability. For example, at least for some indicators of replication success, “Surprising effects were less reproducible” (take note, journalists and editors of Psychological Science!). For the studies that did not replicate, we have more data, which can inform not just our statistical inferences, but also our theoretical inferences. The Reproducibility Project demonstrates large scale collaborative efforts can work, so if you still believe in an effect that did not replicate, get some people together, collect enough data, and let me know what you find.
