Heartened by the rapidly growing awareness of the importance of doing more replication studies in psychology (see editorials linked in our earlier blog postings below), PsychFileDrawer.org has added a new feature with which users collectively create a list of important studies that need replication. Here is the current list. You can vote for up to three items (nominations of studies not already listed count as one vote–the software assumes that anyone nominating a study also wants to vote for it.)
So please consider What are important studies in your field of psychology that currently lack published replications? When the list has grown and the rankings are stable, the psychological community may use this as a guide for which attempted replications would have the most influence. Results could be reported on PsychFileDrawer.org where publishing a journal article is too difficult or researchers do not have the time to do it.
