Event description

Description

Under the auspices of the Joint Committee for Psychology in Higher Education, the British Psychological Society, Experimental Psychology Society and the Association of Heads of Psychology Departments are hosting an event on Replication and Reproducibility in Psychology at the Royal Society in London (https://royalsociety.org/) on 26th May 2016 from 2-7.30pm.

The aim of the event is to have a positive, upbeat and collegiate afternoon’s debate and discussion prompted by Nosek et al’s (2015) Science paper (http://science.sciencemag.org/content/349/6251/aac4716); followed by a networking wine reception sponsored by Wiley.

The Nosek paper has substantial implications for psychology and how we publish our research as well for scientific methods etc. The event will consist of a range of presentations that will consider these implications for the future of psychology and science more generally. Our speakers will discuss potential solutions (e.g., need for pre-registration, implications for training of psychologists/scientists, the Open Science Framework) as well as give attention to what might be considered a good percentage of replication (and what we can learn from lower levels of reproducibility etc.).

During the event, delegates will be able to participate in live interaction polls and audience Q&A using sli.do.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Marcus Munafo (University of Bristol) – ‘Reproducibility’ crisis or opportunity?
  • Professor Roger Watt (University of Stirling) – Expected distributions of p-values in replications are not what you expected
  • Professor Dorothy Bishop (University of Oxford) – Hacking a way through the garden of forking paths: A cause of poor reproducibility
  • Professor Chris Chambers (Cardiff University) – Registered Reports as a tool for improving research transparency and reproducibility
  • Nick Brown (University Medical Center, Groningen) – An outsider’s view of the incentive structure of science
  • Dr Prateek Buch (Policy Associate, Sense About Science) – Transparent government research


We hope that you are able to join us! Please register by 20th May 2016 to secure your place.
