We are looking for professors, post-docs, PhD students and more broadly researchers interested in a one-day replication challenge at the University of Ottawa on May 5th, 2023. This event is part of games organized all over the world (Australia, Norway, France, Germany, etc.) by the . More details .
Participants will join a small team and being asked to replicate a study in their field of interest. Teams may either conduct a robustness replication, which is the ability to duplicate the results of a prior study using the same data but different procedures as were used by the original investigator - or recode the study using the raw or intermediate data. Teams may also do a combination of robustness/recoding.
Participants are asked to read the paper and familiarize themselves with the replication package prior to the Games. Teams should have a gameplan for the Games. Each team member should know what they are supposed to do during the Games. Teams then have to write up a short replication report summarizing their efforts.
Participants will be granted co-authorship to a meta-paper combining a large number of replications. Participants will be matched based on research interests, and a study from a leading journal will be assigned to each team. Some teams elect to submit their replication to a journal, allowing for the possibility to get another publication.
Virtual participants are welcome. Games typically start at about 8:30 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. local time. You are expected to work with your teammates during that time.
