Materials on Publications

I aim at the full reproductivity of my empirical data analysis. I think I'm slowly getting there. Someday I might write a longer piece on replication (with a focus on psychology). Meanwhile, I recommend the articles by King (1996), Wicherts & Bakker (2012), and also Bowers (2011). You can also read the blog post I wrote when I put the first batch of replication material online.

Syntax, do-files, scripts etc.
