The Reproducibility Project: Psychology was a collaborative effort of 270 contributors to replicate 100 important findings in the psychology literature. RP:P began in November 2011, finished primary data collection in December 2014, and published its findings in Science magazine on August 28, 2015. After the results were published, people from around the world engaged in conversations about the impact of this study on reproducibility and transparency.
