No doubt partly prompted by a recent spate of academic fraud, Science magazine published results from a study that set out to replicate 100 published psychology studies. An "international team of experts," however, could "reproduce only 36% of original findings." (News coverage here.) While I'm sure many in the psychology field will seek to explain such findings, an inability to replicate 74% of studies published in "top" psychology journals is, at the very least, jarring.
