The replication crisis is typically discussed in the context of particular silly claims, or in terms of the sociology of science, or with regard to controversies in statistical practice. Here we discuss the content of unreplicated or otherwise shaky empirical claims in social science, which often seem to be associated with a model in which important attitudes and behavior can be easily manipulated using irrelevant stimuli.

Coronavirus: update

WZB cancels all public events

All public events at the WZB have to be cancelled with immediate effect.

This measure will be effective until further notice. It is based on the decision of March 11, 2020 by the Governing Mayor of Berlin to introduce a range of urgent measures for Berlin's research institutions to counter the further spread of the Corona-virus.

The WZB has set up a crisis management team that regularly reviews the current situation.

Further information will follow.
