Many psychological findings could not be replicated in novel samples, which lead to the growing concern that many published findings are overly optimistic or even false. In her dissertation, Michèle Nuijten investigated potential indicators of problems in the published psychological literature and came up with some solutions.

  • Field work in Congo; challenges and opportunities - Rianne Letschert 26 Mar 2018Opinion Field work in Congo; challenges and opportunities - Rianne Letschert
    In the week of 16 October 2017, I went to Kampala, Uganda, to meet with a potential research team to determine whether they could conduct the case study in the Ituri region in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since the security situation in this particular region is fragile, we decided to first meet in Uganda. The two colleagues I met are Senator Prof. Dr. Ruhigwa Baguma and Kakoraki Baguma, both from Bunia which is located in Ituri. Both gentlemen are also affiliated with the University of Bunia.
