Reasons for full disclosure: how we hold back scientific progress When we complete a study, we tend to publish only the results. Researchers rarely publish the questionnaires, computer tasks, intervention manuals, study protocols and other materials that were used to generate these results. Similarly, readers do not usually have access to complete data sets, all statistical analyses undertaken or the commands (e.g. 'syntax' in SPSS) needed to replicate these analyses. In addition, researchers… Expand
Health Psychology Bulletin: Improving Publication Practices to Accelerate Scientific Progress
TLDR
Health Psychology Bulletin is a new open access journal that actively promotes full disclosure through publication of replication and analysis packages and that explicitly welcomes null findings, reports of failed manipulation, replications, as well as regular contributions. Expand
Knowing how effective an intervention, treatment, or manipulation is and increasing replication rates: accuracy in parameter estimation as a partial solution to the replication crisis
TLDR
It is shown that the sampling distribution of Cohen’s d is very wide unless sample sizes are considerably larger than what is common in psychology studies, which means that effect size estimates can vary substantially from sample to sample, even with perfect replications. Expand
Targeting Next Generations to Change the Common Practice of Underpowered Research
TLDR
It is argued that practices that are ubiquitous in the authors' curricula have the unintended effect of promoting underpowered research, and easy-to-implement solutions are recommended. Expand
Enhancing Reporting of Behavior Change Intervention Evaluations
TLDR
Recommendations made by an international group of scholars constituting the Workgroup for Intervention Development and Evaluation Research (WIDER), which has developed brief guidance to journal editors to improve the reporting of evaluations of behavior change interventions are advanced, thereby serving as an addition to reporting statements such as CONSORT.

A practical guide to effective behavior change : How to identify what to change in the first place
ehps.net/ehp In 1947, mathematician John von Neuman remarked that mathematics is simple, supporting this claim with a comparison with something infinitely more complicated: "If people do not believeExpand
Reforms in Academic Publishing: Should Behavioral Disorders and Special Education Journals Embrace Them?
Bias poses a significant threat to the validity of research findings as well as practices and policies based on research. Reforms to academic publishing have been proposed and implemented in otherExpand
Scale quality: alpha is an inadequate estimate and factor-analytic evidence is needed first of all
TLDR
It is argued that Cronbach's alpha is an inadequate estimate for both validity and reliability – two key elements of scale quality – and Omega is a readily available alternative that can be used for both interval and ordinal data. Expand
Creating groups with similar expected behavioural response in randomized controlled trials: a fuzzy cognitive map approach
TLDR
A novel computational approach for allocating participants to different groups that automatically uses participants’ experiences to model (the interactions among) their prognostic factors and infer how their behaviour is expected to change under a given intervention. Expand
Everything should be as simple as possible, but no simpler: towards a protocol for accumulating evidence regarding the active content of health behaviour change interventions
TLDR
An iterative protocol for evidence base accumulation is proposed that integrates evidence derived from both experimental and applied behaviour change research, and combines theory development in experimental settings with theory testing in applied real-life settings as evidence gathered in this manner accumulates. Expand
A longitudinal study on the stability of the need for cognition
Abstract It is unclear whether the Need for cognition (NFC) is a stable trait. The current study tests whether individual-level changes in NFC occur over time and whether, in line with cognitiveExpand

False-Positive Psychology
TLDR
It is shown that despite empirical psychologists’ nominal endorsement of a low rate of false-positive findings, flexibility in data collection, analysis, and reporting dramatically increases actual false- positive rates, and a simple, low-cost, and straightforwardly effective disclosure-based solution is suggested. Expand
Does Psi exist? Lack of replication of an anomalous process of information transfer.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 30 ganzfeld ESP studies from 7 independent laboratories adhering to the same stringent methodological guidelines that C. Honorton followed concludes that the ganzfield technique does not at present offer a replicable method for producing ESP in the laboratory. Expand
Why psychologists must change the way they analyze their data: the case of psi: comment on Bem (2011).
TLDR
It is concluded that Bem's p values do not indicate evidence in favor of precognition; instead, they indicate that experimental psychologists need to change the way they conduct their experiments and analyze their data. Expand
The (mis)reporting of statistical results in psychology journals
TLDR
The authors' results indicate that around 18% of statistical results in the psychological literature are incorrectly reported, and that errors were often in line with researchers’ expectations. Expand
A peculiar prevalence of p values just below .05
In null hypothesis significance testing (NHST), p values are judged relative to an arbitrary threshold for significance (.05). The present work examined whether that standard influences theExpand

TLDR
A few rules of thumb are presented to help readers identify questionable statistical analysis and estimate what the authors would have concluded had they used appropriate statistical methods. Expand

Behavioral Priming: It's All in the Mind, but Whose Mind?
TLDR
It is concluded that unconscious behavioral priming is real, while real, involves mechanisms different from those typically assumed to cause the effect. Expand
Failing the Future: Three Unsuccessful Attempts to Replicate Bem's ‘Retroactive Facilitation of Recall’ Effect
TLDR
Three pre-registered independent attempts to exactly replicate one of recently reported parapsychological experiments, ‘retroactive facilitation of recall’, which examines whether performance on a memory test can be influenced by a post-test exercise, failed to produce significant effects and thus do not support the existence of psychic ability.

Threatening communication: a critical re-analysis and a revised meta-analytic test of fear appeal theory
TLDR
A meta-analysis of six studies that satisfied the inclusion criteria clearly showed a significant interaction between threat and efficacy, such that threat only had an effect under high efficacy, and efficacy only had aeffect under high threat. Expand
