Description

Revisiting the replicability, and credibility, crisis in the social sciences and progress towards addressing it

The UNSW Business School’s experimental research laboratory (BizLab http://bizlab.unsw.edu.au/website/) and the Behavioral Insights for Business and Policy (BIBaP https://www.bibap.unsw.edu.au/future-events/) research network are hosting a half-day Workshop on Research Methods in Social Sciences and Business on Friday, November 3rd.

The theme for the workshop is Revisiting the replicability, and credibility, crisis in the social sciences and progress towards addressing it. It is no longer news that economics, psychology, and other business and social sciences face serious replication crises that seem to be brought about – to a considerable extent – by questionable practices such as p-hacking and publication bias. Since replication is an important component of cumulative science, these crises pose a major challenge and are of considerable interest to everyone working experimentally or empirically in accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, psychology and other related areas. The workshop offers an up-to-date assessment of the current state of the crises and strategies (such as the recent proposal by the group of 72 to reduce alpha to 0.005) to overcome them.

We welcome academics from across the business disciplines and social sciences who are interested in experimental and empirical methods and interdisciplinary exchange. It is anticipated that both faculty and PhD students from across Australia will attend the workshop, and there will be plenty of time for informal networking.
