Psychology Research By Philosophers Is Robust and Replicates Better Than Other Areas of Psychology

There are numerous criteria that can be used for determining whether a study replicates or not. The XRP used three: a subjective assessment by the replicating team, whether the replication achieved a statistically significant result in the same direction as the original study, and whether the effect sizes of the original and replication studies were comparable. The XRP found that X-Phi studies replicated 78 percent of the time according to the first two criteria, and 71 percent of the time judged by the third — way better than the 39 to 47 percent for psychology as whole, although other specific subfields like cognitive psychology have also reported promising results.
