Replicability or reproducibility? On the replication crisis in computational neuroscience and sharing only relevant detail

Marcin Miłkowski, Witold M. Hensel, Mateusz Hohol
2018 Journal of Computational Neuroscience  
We claim that although both are undesirable, low model reproducibility poses more of a threat to long-term scientific progress than low model replicability.  ...  Replicability and reproducibility of computational models has been somewhat understudied by "the replication movement."  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to kindly thank Piotr Litwin (Department of Psychology, University of Warsaw, & Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences) for helping us with the  ...

Reproducibility and Forensic Science Talk - EAFS 2018 [article]

Christian Cole
2018 Figshare  
A core tenet of empirical science is that an experiment should be described in sufficient detail that another scientist can redo the experiment and get the same result.  ...  In this presentation we will highlight issues of lack of reproducibility that are currently affecting other areas of science and show how Forensic Science can learn to avoid the traps and pitfalls of irreproducible  ...  Replication in 2012 felt like an attack because it was so rare in science at the time. Now it's become normal." "Science is really a process of uncertainty reduction." -Brian Nosek (D.  ...

A Guide to Event Data: Past, Present, and Future

Philip Schrodt, Jay Yonamine
2016 All Azimuth A journal of foreign policy and peace  
The goal of this paper is to provide a general overview of event data and its importance in the study of political conflict.  ...  In doing so, we illustrate how the level of methodological sophistication in the data collection, coding, and analyzing process has progressed from the earliest event-data projects in the 1970s to the  ...  However, most empirical models used in the social sciences are not equipped to handle this level of heterogeneity in data.  ...

Sexual and Emotional Infidelity: Evolved Gender Differences in Jealousy Prove Robust and Replicable

David M. Buss
2018 Perspectives on Psychological Science  
Because of gender differences in some aspects of reproductive biology, such as internal female fertilization, the nature of these threats differs for men and women.  ...  It also heralded the newly emerging field of evolutionary psychology as a useful perspective that possesses the scientific virtues of testability, falsifiability, and heuristic value in discovering previously  ...  Given the current replication crisis in social psychology, these empirical success-stories are noteworthy.  ...

2021 PLoS ONE  
To those involved in discussions about rigor, reproducibility, and replication in science, conversation about the "reproducibility crisis" appear ill-structured.  ...  We take a novel empirical, mixed methods approach to understanding variation in reproducibility discussions, using a combination of grounded theory and correspondence analysis to examine how a variety  ...  We also thank the Department of Medical History and Bioethics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for providing publication fee assistance.

Using "Cinéma Vérité" (truthful cinema) to facilitate replication and accountability in psychological research†

Jerry Suls
2013 Frontiers in Psychology  
Making recordings of all research participants a standard practice would be a greater challenge because of threats to internal validity and ethical concerns, however it is feasible and merits a broad discussion  ...  more information about the procedures described in the research publication.  ...  This is a problem because replication not only helps to build a cumulative science, but also discourages fraudulent behavior.  ...

Are Costly Signals More Credible? Evidence of Sender-Receiver Gaps

Kai Quek
2016 Journal of Politics  
There is a sender-receiver gap in how the same deterrence interaction is perceived at the two ends of the signaling mechanism, contrary to what the theory of costly signaling automatically assumes.  ...  Causal evidence is elusive because the effect of a costly signal is almost always confounded with the effects of other previous or simultaneous information.  ...  However, this is less realistic in the case of an international crisis, where a failed deterrent signal can end the crisis in a war, with no further replay of the same crisis.  ...
