Science is self-correcting, but it often takes too long.
A spreadsheet to compute the R-Index and a manual that shows how to use the spreadsheet is now available on the www.r-index.org website. Researchers from all fields of science that use statistics are welcome to use the R-Index to examine the statistical integrity of published research findings. A high R-Index suggests that a set of studies reported results that are likely to replicate in an EXACT replication study with high statistical power. A low R-Index suggests that published results may be biased and that published results may not replicate. Researchers can share the results of their R-Index analyses by submitting the completed spreadsheets to www.r-index.org and the results will be posted anonymously. Results and spreadsheets will be openly accessible.
