Talk for the Association of British Science Writers The 'replication crisis' has led to a call for initiatives to increase the replicability of psychological science, such as data and code sharing, pre-registration, registered reports, and reproducible workflows. Similarly, researchers have questioned the extent to which studies of WEIRD populations (Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich, and Democratic) generalise to the majority of people in the rest of the world. In this 45-minute session, Lisa DeBruine, a professor of psychology at University of Glasgow, will discuss how large-scale collaborations can improve both replicability and generalisability, with a focus on the Psychological Science Accelerator, a sort of CERN for psychological science, a globally distributed network of more than 500 laboratories from 70 countries across all six populated continents. Using one of her own studies into face perception Professor DeBruine will demonstrate how this works in practice. She will then discuss how face perception can affect our work as journalists and writers and elaborate how our perceptions of others can play a role in daily life more generally.
