11th SFB Colloquium – Prof. Dr. Stephen Lindsay

Prof. Lindsay will give a talk on "Psychology’s Renaissance: Progress toward Transparency and Replicability".

Some areas of psychology have, over the last 50 or so years, developed norms of research that foster the production of Type I errors and exaggerated estimates of the sizes of real effects. Awareness of these problematic practices has exploded in the last 7 years. There has been a lot of progress, but also considerable resistance and misunderstanding. I will summarize my perceptions of the current state of play and invite discussion of ways forward.
