Improving the generalizability of infant psychological research: The ManyBabies model

Behav Brain Sci. 2022 Feb 10;45:e35. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X21000455.


Yarkoni's analysis clearly articulates a number of concerns limiting the generalizability and explanatory power of psychological findings, many of which are compounded in infancy research. ManyBabies addresses these concerns via a radically collaborative, large-scale and open approach to research that is grounded in theory-building, committed to diversification, and focused on understanding sources of variation.
