How to make replications mainstream

  • Hans IJzerman (a1), Jon Grahe (a2) and Mark J. Brandt (a3)


Zwaan et al. integrated previous articles to promote making replications mainstream. We wholeheartedly agree. We extend their discussion by highlighting several existing initiatives – the Replication Recipe and the Collaborative Education and Research Project (CREP) - which aim to make replications mainstream. We hope this exchange further stimulates making replications mainstream.
