Results: Replication in Psychology

My paper with Adena Schachner on replication in psychology is now published. The paper contains 3 main sections: a reasonably thorough literature review on replication rates in psychology, a proposal as to how to improve replication rates (primarily through tracking replication rates), and the results of a survey of psychologists on replication practices (many thanks to all who participated). The results of the survey was that while not nearly enough replications are attempted, there are actually more being attempted than we had guessed (or than many of our colleagues that we discussed this project with had guessed).
This paper is part of a larger collection of papers on reimagining the publication and review process, and is more of those papers are printed, I plan to discuss at least some of them.
