A prospective replication project involving systematic replication of novel findings produced in the normal course of research by four labs. The purpose is to develop a gold standard for replication protocol, in which every effort is made to design experiments and implement replications in a manner that will maximize the likelihood of full replicability. We will examine whether the replications of newly devised experimental protocols are associated with declining effect sizes, even when all reasonable efforts are made to minimize such declines. If declining effect sizes are still observed, we will attempt to identify their possible locus by, for example, assessing whether other labs can replicate the findings as effectively as the originating lab.
