The Rhodes Series presents: Stephen Lindsay
This talk will first review a number of statistical and methodological shortcomings that have contributed to a replication crisis in several life sciences, including psychology, and will then discuss a number of practical steps that most researchers can easily take to increase the replicability of their research. Replicability is not the only important consideration for researchers -- psychologists also want their work to be interesting and relevant and useful -- but replicability is foundational for any science.
Stephen Lindsay is a cognitive psychologist at the University of Victoria whose research explores human memory. He is currently serving as Coordinator of the Cognition and Brain Sciences (CaBS) graduate program. Lindsay is also Editor in Chief of Psychological Science, the flagship journal of the Association for Psychological Science.
