Launching the Institute for Replication (I4R)

Replication is key to the credibility and confidence in research findings. As falsification checks of past evidence, replication efforts contribute in essential ways to the production of scientific knowledge. They allow us to assess which findings are robust, making science a self-correcting system, with major downstream effects on policy-making. Despite these benefits, reproducibility and replicability rates are surprisingly low, and direct replications rarely published. Addressing these challenges requires innovative approaches in how we conduct, reward, and communicate the outcomes of reproductions and replications.

That is why we are excited to announce the official launch of the Institute for Replication (I4R), an institute working to improve the credibility of science by systematically reproducing and replicating research findings in leading academic journals. Our team of collaborators supports researchers and aims to improve the credibility of science by

– Reproducing, conducting sensitivity analysis and replicating results of studies published in leading journals.

– Establishing an open access website to serve as a central repository containing the replications, responses by the original authors and documentation.

– Developing and providing access to educational material on replication and open science.

– Preparing standardized file structure and code and documentation aimed at facilitating reproducibility and replicability by the broader community.
