In this article you find information on how to enter a new replication. If your question is not answered here please contact: Björn Zakula [1]


1. Search if the replication already exists and if necessary enter the missing information

  1. First search if the replication already exists by browsing in the category replication or by using the search tool.
  2. If the replication exists please enter the information.
  3. If the replication does not exist create a new page by using the form you find at the bottom right of the main page. Then everything is done automatically, including the setting of the categories. All you have to do by hand is check if there already was a category for the journal issue. If not the new page will show a red link for it that you should use. You can continue with point 9.
    You can also add a new replication by entering the title in the search field following our naming convention:
    Title of replication (Acronym of journal Year of publication),
    e.g., Successful Replication of AER Article by Chang, et al. (2002) (IJEB 2004)
  4. Click on "create the page". As a result, you will get a new page in editing mode.
  5. Choose and load the boilerplate "Replication" to standardize and simplify the data collection.

  6. Fill in the information on the right hand side of the equality sign. Please leave the table headings unchanged.
  7. Add [[Category:Replication]] at the bottom of the edit window.
  8. Add the category of the journal issue in which the replication is published. The format convention is: Acronym of journal Year of Publication (Issue) e.g. [[Category:IJEB 2004 (2)]].
  9. If the journal or the category are not yet listed in the wiki, please refer to Help:New Journal respectively Help:Category to learn how to create it.
  10. Finally, check the page by clicking on the Show preview button below the edit window and don't forget to save the page.

2. Search if the original article exists and if necessary enter the missing information

  1. Search if the original article to which the replication refers already exists in the wiki by browsing by journal or using the search tool.
  2. If the article exists please enter missing information. If it uses the form for studies lacking replication, click "edit" instead of "edit with form" and change the first line from "{{New Study lacking replication" to "{{New Replicated study". The new fields then can be used after saving and chosing "edit with forms" the next time. If forms are not used and it was categorized as Study lacking replication overwrite this category with Category:Replicated study. If you add a second replication of that study also add the subcategory Category:Study with more than one replication.
  3. If the original article does not exist create a new page by using the form you find at the bottom right of the main page. Then everything is done automatically, including the setting of the categories. All you have to do by hand is check if there already was a category for the journal issue. If not the new page will show a red link for it that you should use. You can continue with point 9.
    You can also enter a new article by entering the title in the search field following our naming convention:
    Title of article (Acronym of journal Year of publication),
    e.g., Learning-by-Doing as a Propagation Mechanism (AER 2002)
