We present results from Many Labs 4, which was designed to investigate whether contact with original authors and other experts improved replication rates for a complex psychological paradigm.

The transparency and reproducibility movement in empirical research mostly focuses on the U.S. and Europe. Here’s how one research team introduced the replication crisis to the political science community in Brazil by creating a reproducibility user guide – which is relevant for everyone, everywhere.
Healthy collaboration between industry and academia can lead to great discoveries and innovations. Working with industry comes with challenges for academics. Here we will discuss some of the challenges we have faced while working on a large project with several Australian policing agencies, and how open science has helped us address these challenges.
