stuff that doesn’t replicate
Here’s the list (so far):
Some people might want to hand wave the problem away or jump to the conclusion that science is broken. There’s a more intuitive explanation – science is “brittle.” That is, once you get past some basic and important findings, you get to findings that are small in size, require many technical assumptions, or rely on very specific laboratory/data collection conditions.
There should be two responses. First, editors should reject submissions which might depend on “local conditions” or very small results or send them to lower tier journals. Second, other researchers should feel free to try to replicate research. This is appropriate work for early career academics who need to learn how work is done. Of course, people who publish in top journals, or obtain famous results, should expect replication requests.
