Wiki Version:
Over the past five years, psychological scientists have learned that many of our findings do not replicate (e.g., OSC, 2015), or if they do replicate, they have much smaller effects than initially proposed (e.g., Sisk et al. 2018). During the same time period, professional societies have been increasingly encouraging psychologists to share their research with the world, encouraging us to “give psychology away” (e.g., Association for Psychological Science, 2014; Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, 2016). This creates an interesting dilemma: If much of our research has uncertain credibility, how should we engage in public outreach while accurately communicating our uncertainty? The goal of this hackathon is to work together to develop some guidelines that address this question. Our hope is our efforts may also help identify meta-science projects to help enhance the trustworthiness of psychological science more generally.
