Who Needs Replication?
CALICO Journal, v30 n1 p10-15 Jan 2013
In this paper, the editor of a recent Cambridge University Press book on research methods discusses replicating previous key studies to throw more light on their reliability and generalizability. Replication research is presented as an accepted method of validating previous research by providing comparability between the original and replicated study. The paper considers three scenarios to account for the relative lack of replication research in learned journals in our field and goes on to suggest a number of ways in which this situation might be remedied.
