Replicating Studies

Replication is a term that refers to the repetition of a research study to determine whether the basic results of the original study can be applied to other participants and circumstances. (Kendra Cherry, 2018)

A replication study attempts to validate the findings of a prior piece of research. By doing so, that prior research is confirmed as being both accurate and broadly applicable, since the replication study typically changes one or more variables of the original study, such as sample population, industry sector, etc. From the perspective of contributing to scientific research, replication studies are important for the continued progress of science. Without validation, how do future researchers know whether to build on the findings of that original work? Source: https://www.enago.com/academy/importance-of-replication-studies/
