Opening up Pre-Publication Independent Replication to the World
The Pipeline Project
The Pipeline Project 2 is a crowdsourced initiative to replicate original unpublished studies in independent laboratories. Twelve research groups have each volunteered one unpublished finding, supported by initial evidence from their laboratory, to be replicated by teams in other locations. At each replication site, the same materials and methodology are used in a new data collection with a new participant population. The replication sites differ in many characteristics (sample size, nationalities, etc) which may or may not moderate the replication results. We want to see if you can predict which original effects will replicate, and also variability across cultural contexts and methodological factors.
