Data replication matters to an underpowered study, but replicated hypothesis corroboration counts
Research output: Contribution to journal › Debate/Note/Editorial
Before replication becomes mainstream, the potential for generating theoretical knowledge better be clear. Replicating statistically significant nonrandom data shows that an original study made a discovery; replicating a specified theoretical effect shows that an original study corroborated a theory. Yet only in the latter case is replication a necessary, sound, and worthwhile strategy.
