academic incentive structure

High-powered direct replications of social psychology findings (for in press paper; out-of-date)

***IMPORTANT NOTE***: This list was compiled on October 13, 2015 solely for an in press paper at JPSP, to be referenced as additional replications of social psych findings **beyond** large-scale replication efforts such as RP:P, Social Psych special issue, ML1, and ML3 and was not meant to be disseminated widely. Hence, this list is completely out-of-date. For a more systematic effort to track replications in psychology, see Curate Science.

The table below lists successful (n=3) and unsuccessful (n=111) high-powered direct replications of social psychology findings (known to us on October 13, 2015). For simplicity, only replications with statistical power >= 80% to detect an effect size as large (or larger) than the original finding are included (citation counts according to Google Scholar, retrieved October 2015). This list was tabulated as additional evidence to support the broader position that the current incentive structure in social psychology is not conducive to generating cumulative knowledge in light of several meta-scientific investigations revealing low replicability rates of social psychology findings (e.g., Reproducibility Project: 76% replication failure rate of social psychology studies; Social Psych special issue: 70% failure rate; Many Labs 3: 88% failure rate).
