The replication crisis in social sciences denotes that findings in behavioral science often cannot be replicated, making it one of the most impactfulevents. The Open Science movement, which aims to deal with the replication crisis, is recognized its importance by more and more researchers. Meanwhile, as LMER is found its statistical sensitivity and applicableness in Open Science practice, the current course will also introduce why and how to apply LMER in your research, and how to conduct its power analysis.
There have been concerns about the credibility of findings in psychological and social science for nearly two decades. The term “replication crisis” which originated in the early 2010s, denotes that findings in behavioral science often cannot be replicated. Many scientists question the accuracy of published findings and now call for increased scrutiny of research practices in psychology and sociology. Open Science is the movement that aims to deal with the replication crisis, especially in more open and collaborative research practices in which publications, data, software, and other types of academic output are shared at the earliest possible stage and made available for reuse, including replication. Open Science and LMER is offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Understand the current Open Science progression, and to be able to comply with the Open Science practice guideline practically, such as DMP and pre-registration.
- Understand how LMER helps with more accurate and reliable results than traditional statistics and how to use LMER analysis in different research fields.
- Calculate a priori power analysis for LMER analysis with data simulation within the Open Science structure.
