[RP:P Home][1] ## Reports about the Reproducibility Project: Psychology The Reproducibility Project: Psychology was a collaborative, crowdsourced effort of 270 authors and 86 additional volunteers. Across multiple criteria, we successfully reproduced fewer than half of the 100 original findings investigated. Multiple analysis methods were used, examining p-values, effect sizes, a meta-analysis combining original and replication effects, and subjective assessments to evaluate the success of each replication. Stronger original effects were correlated with stronger replication effects. Other correlates of reproducibility were investigated, examining possible influences on replication success. This suggest that reproducibility is difficult to achieve and changes in some research practices could increase the reproducibility of published research. ***Science* publication summarizing aggregate results:** [Article and Supplement.][2] "Estimating the Reproducibility of Psychological Science" [Supplement only.][3] Supplementary materials to "Estimating the Reproducibility of Psychological Science."
