Bühler Lecture: Prof. Rolf Zwaan, PhD, Erasmus Universität Rotterdam23.04.2018
Am Montag, den 23. April 2018, wird Herr Prof. Rolf Zwaan von der Erasmus Universität Rotterdam im Rahmen der Bühler Lecture zu folgenden Thema sprechen:
"Making Replication Mainstream".
Many philosophers of science and methodologists have argued that the ability to repeat studies and obtain similar results is an essential component of science. A finding is elevated from single observation to scientific evidence when the procedures that were used to obtain it can be reproduced and the finding itself can be replicated. Recent replication attempts show that some high profile results - most notably in psychology, but in many other disciplines as well - cannot be replicated consistently. These replication attempts have generated a considerable amount of controversy and the issue of whether direct replications have value has, in particular, proven to be contentious. However, much of this discussion has occurred in published commentaries and social media outlets, resulting in a fragmented discourse. I will review various types of replication studies and then discuss the most commonly voiced concerns about direct replication. I will respond to these concerns and consider different statistical ways to evaluate replications. I will conclude there are no theoretical or statistical obstacles to making direct replication a routine aspect of psychological science.
