Report: “Facts Are More Important Than Novelty: Replication in the Education Sciences”
Authors: Matthew C. Makel, gifted education reseach specialist at the Duke University Talent Identification Program, and Jonathan A. Plucker, a professor of educational leadership at the University of Connecticut
Summary: The authors of the study, published in Educational Researcher, the journal of the American Educational Research Association, set out to learn how often studies in the field get formally replicated. They compiled a list of the top 100 education journals, based on how much the journals were cited over five years, and calculated the share of articles ever published in each that involved attempts to replicate earlier research.
