123: P-hacking and other problems in psychology research (Daniel Lakens)

December 14, 2014

What’s wrong with the social sciences? In this episode, Massimo and Julia are joined by Professor Daniel Lakens from the Eindhoven University of Technology, who studies psychology and blogs about research methods and open science. The three discuss why so many psychology papers can’t be trusted, and what solutions might exist for the problem (including how to fix the skewed incentives in the field).
