David Hogg pointed me to this post by Gary Marcus, reviewing this skeptics’ all-star issue of Perspectives on Psychological Science that features replication culture heroes Jelte Wicherts, Hal Pashler, Arina Bones, E. J. Wagenmakers, Gregory Francis, Hal Pashler, John Ioannidis, and Uri Simonsohn. I agree with pretty much everything Marcus has to say. In addition to Marcus’s suggestions, which might be called cultural or psychological, I also have various statistical ideas that might help move the field forward. Most notably I think we need to go beyond uniform priors and null-hypothesis testing to a more realistic set of models for effects and variation. I’ll discuss more at some other time, but in the meantime I thought I’d share these links.
P.S. Marcus updates with a glass-is-half-full take.
