The Replication Crisis

Experimental social science has favored nonintuitive effects as being “interesting”, and has used poor research methods so that most published papers describe influences where no such influence is found if a larger (more accurate) study is done. When an effect is found in a replication study, it is almost always weaker than in the original study, and may be opposite in direction to the original finding. See Replication Crisis.
