About the project

For scientific progress, it is pivotal to review research findings by independently replicating results, thus making the findings more reliable. However, in empirical social science research, it is not yet common practice to publish replication findings. This wiki serves as a database of empirical studies, the availability of replication material for them and of replication studies. It can help teaching replication to students. Seminars at several faculties internationally were already taught for which the information of this database was used.

So far the focus has been on some leading journals in economics. Replication results can be published as replication working papers of the University of Göttingen's Center for Statistics.
Teaching and providing access to information will raise awareness for the need for replications, provide a basis for research about the reasons why replications so often fail and how this can be changed, and educate future generations of economists about how to make research replicable. The starting phase of this project was funded by the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET).

Join the project

You can join the project by entering a new replication or empirical studies that could be replicated. For the latter you can vote which ones you find most relevant to be replicated. Furthermore, you can improve the articles in the wiki and make comments. Under current events you can announce news and upcoming events. The community portal lists open tasks and suggestions for the wiki.
