Replication in the behavioural sciences

In this project we will further investigate the phenomenon of replication studies. First by proposing a new method to conduct a replication, using data from the Open Science Collaboration (OSC) Reproducibility Project Psychology (OSC, 2012; 2015). Using informative hypotheses (e.g. Klugkist, Laudy, & Hoijtink, 2005; Hoijtink, 2012, p. 50-51) the replicating hypotheses will be analyzed with the Bayes Factor (e.g. Kass & Raftery, 1995; Hoijtink, Mulder, Van Lissa, & Gu, 2019). In the second project, qualitative methods (e.g. Glaser, 1978; Boeije, 2010) will be used to research the view of psychologists on the phenomenon of replication.
