Comment on "Estimating the reproducibility of psychological science"

Science. 2016 Mar 4;351(6277):1037. doi: 10.1126/science.aad7243.

Abstract

A paper from the Open Science Collaboration (Research Articles, 28 August 2015, aac4716) attempting to replicate 100 published studies suggests that the reproducibility of psychological science is surprisingly low. We show that this article contains three statistical errors and provides no support for such a conclusion. Indeed, the data are consistent with the opposite conclusion, namely, that the reproducibility of psychological science is quite high.
