(p.552) 18 Replications and Their Assessment
Artifacts in Behavioral Research

Robert Rosenthal

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses replication. The crucial role of replication is well established in science generally. The undetected equipment failure, the rare and possibly random human errors of procedure, observation, recording, computation, or report are known well enough to make scientists wary of the unreplicated experiment. When we add to the possibility of the random “fluke,” common to all sciences, the fact of individual organismic differences and the possibility of systematic experimenter effects in at least the behavioral sciences, the importance of replication looms larger still to the behavioral scientist.

Keywords:   replication, inferential models, correlated replicators, replication assessment
