Aetiology of the Replication Crisis

This submission has open access
Submission Summary
The replication crisis describes an ongoing phenomenon, particularly in the social and medical sciences, in which there is a high frequency of unsuccessful replications which has been a cause of deep concern in the fields in question. But how did we get here? What exactly is at issue in this “crisis”? Our symposium is broadly concerned with providing insights into the aetiology of the replication crisis, particularly in psychology. We look at this topic from historical, philosophical and metascientific perspectives: three talks focus on specific candidate explanations of the replication crisis or low replicability, and one talk examines the emerging field of metascience. We hope that our symposium provides interesting insights into the replication crisis and its aetiology as a topic at the cutting edge of contemporary science and philosophy of science, as well as providing a platform for further discussion.
