Daniel Kanemann calls for ‘priming’ studies in psychology to be replicated in NATURE.
I find it interesting that one of Kanemann’s motivations is to protect graduate students on the job market.
06 July update:
I see that the funder 3ie now has a replication program to fund replications of past programs/studies. HERE.
And here is Stevenson and Wolfers review of replication in economics literature
For a scholar, replication offers an unappealing bet. Heads, you discover that the findings of an original study are largely correct, and no journal will publish your paper because there’s no interest in learning that something is still true. Tails, you find a serious flaw, but your results still probably won’t be published and you’ve earned enemies who may try to land some reputational punches against you.
