Over half of psychology studies fail reproducibility test

Betting a lot of this has to do with retarded p-value hacking and general failures of NHST overall as well as a retarded incentive structure that discourages replication and publication of negative findings.

Good thing the biological and behavioral scientific world is gradually awakening to these things.

I don't know how often statistical techniques used in some other scientific arenas are used in physics.

I was hoping this would get more responses.

Why don't you start a second thread and see if that also gets few responses?

But seriously, thanks for starting the thread - the article was definitely interesting.
I don't do sarcasm smileys, but someone as bright as you has probably figured that out already.
