Psychology: The Least Reproducible Science?
The past five years has seen the growth of concerns that science, and especially psychological science, suffers from low reproducibility. The "replication crisis", prompted by high-profile failures to replicate, has hit psychology especially hard. But is psychology really worse off than other fields of science? In this talk I will discuss the present crisis and argue that while psychology certainly suffers from problems of reproducibility and publication bias, it is not unique in this regard. Many of the ongoing efforts for increasing reproducibility in science have come from within the field of psychology. If these efforts succeed, psychology will have played a part in 'fixing' science.
