About the Event

In  the past decade or so, social scientists have been given increased attention  to scientific transparency and rigor. In particular, debates have ensued about whether scientific findings in  the social sciences are trustworthy (i.e., reproducible, replicable, and based  on proper applications of scientific methods). In this talk, I will critically examine  these scientific debates from the perspectives of the organizational  behavior/psychology (OBP) and the broader psychology literatures. I will specifically attempt to provide a  balanced review of the evidence regarding the extent to which psychological  and OBP research is replicable and reproducible, and whether scholars in these  fields engage in questionable research practices. I will also discuss suggestions for what  authors, reviewers, editors, and journals can do to enhance scientific  transparency and rigor in our field.
