Replication and reform: Vagaries of a social movement.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Reformers in psychology who have mobilized to respond to the “replication crisis” in psychology are subject to social psychological and group influences characteristic of social movements. While producing significant, badly-needed changes in the conduct of science, the rhetoric and argument that best motivate concerted action may neglect nuance, proportion, and apt attention to countervailing considerations and context. To minimize unintended consequences, the movement will benefit if it can entertain criticisms without identifying critics as enemies of science.
