The science of human behavior can generate knowledge that is relevant to every single moment of our lives. This knowledge can be deployed to address society’s most urgent and difficult problems — up to and including depression, discrimination, and climate change. Before 2011, many of us thought the process we used to create this scientific knowledge was working well. We were dead wrong. Most importantly, our field has discovered that even honest researchers can generate findings that are not reliable. It is therefore time to apply our insights to ourselves to drastically change the way science works.
Many Labs 4: Failure to Replicate Mortality Salience Effect With and Without Original Author Involvement
11/2019 – We present results from Many Labs 4, which was designed to investigate whether contact with original authors and other experts improved replication rates for a complex psychological paradigm. However, the project is largely uninformative on that point as, instead, we were unable to replicate the effect of mortality salience on worldview defense under any conditions.
“A good knowledge and the willingness to put in place open science practices (for example, pre-registration or sharing of data) are expected at Grenoble. It will be highly valued if one has already adopted these practices (when the research permits it).”
We study co-regulation in romantic relationships. We study social thermoregulation. We do meta-science. We rely on open science ideals. We collaborate with researchers around the world, but are located at the Université Grenoble Alpes.
