A growing body of evidence indicates that the effects reported in many scientific fields may be overestimated or even false. This problem has gained a lot of attention in the field of psychology, where researchers have even started to speak of a ‘replication crisis’. Fortunately, a number of measures to rectify this problem have already been proposed and implemented, some inspired by practices in other scientific fields. In this review, I briefly examine this issue in the field of psychology and suggest some practical tools and strategies that researchers can implement to increase replicability and the overall quality of their scientific research.
