Data replication matters to an underpowered study, but replicated hypothesis corroboration counts

Witte, Erich H. and Zenker, Frank LU (2018) In The Behavioral and brain sciences 41. p.156-156
Abstract

Before replication becomes mainstream, the potential for generating theoretical knowledge better be clear. Replicating statistically significant nonrandom data shows that an original study made a discovery; replicating a specified theoretical effect shows that an original study corroborated a theory. Yet only in the latter case is replication a necessary, sound, and worthwhile strategy.
