Title: Significance roulette and Open Science: The research practices we need for better science

Abstract: Science relies on replication to correct error, but, with little incentive to conduct replications, few are carried out. Evidence now indicates that many published results simply don’t replicate—which, alas, is a crisis. The imperative to achieve p<.05 is an underlying cause of the problem. In response, Open Science practices are designed to increase the integrity, replicability, and openness of research; they promise to be a valuable disruptor (think Uber, Airbnb), but require all students, teachers, and researchers to re-examine their practices. Open Science strategies include preregistration, open materials and data, reporting research whatever the results, replication, and statistical analysis centred on estimation and meta-analysis (the new statistics). In other words, we need to consider the implications of significance roulette.
