Life After P-Hacking

We discuss how our commitment to publish replicable results will affect our research lives. We must (1) dramatically increase our sample sizes, (2) follow-up exploratory analyses with confirmatory replications, and, because making replicable discoveries requires significant resources, (3) judge researchers by their best publications rather than by their publication quantity.
