Replication Crisis: What Changes Have your Department Made?

It’s been a year since the Open Science Collaboration’s publication on “Estimating the Reproducibility of Psychological Science” was published in Science. It has been cited 515 times since publication, and has been met with much discussion on social networks.

I am interested in what changes your psychology department have made since. Are staff actively encouraged to pre-register all studies? Do you ask faculty members for open data? Are faculty members asked to provide open materials? Do ethics panels check the power of planned studies? Have you embedded Open Science practices into your research methods teaching?

I am preparing a report for my department on how we can address the issues surrounding the replication crisis, and I would be very interested to hear what other departments have done to address these important issues. Please comment on this post with what your department has done!
