Researchers: Replication Toolkits
We believe that ". . . researchers can make every study count by learning from both replication success and failure to improve the rigor, relevance, and reproducibility of intervention research" (Kim, 2019). For this reason, we are committed to making our findings and research data available to other researchers. Consistent with the principles of Open Science, we include open data, open materials, and preregistration info, with preregistration occurring BEFORE implementation. To learn more about how you might gain access to our data sets, just click on "Link to Replication Data" for each study listed below.
Please note that we have begun loading the data sets for our most recent studies. Over time, we will add the data sets for our early studies.
