More evidence that superstition does not strongly influence performance.
Still, the idea won't die. The original study was cited 29 times last year (2019) vs. 5 cites for the replications I conducted with @Fernie103 showing negligible effect.
Sensible reporting guidelines for exp bio: show the data, make confirm vs. exploratory clear, emphasize effect size and uncertainty. Good resource.
Two colleagues and I just published an editorial/review for how to present data and stats in experimental biology journals. It explains new guidelines adopted by three American pharmacology journals.

My last day as Editor of Psych Science. Whew! Best wishes for new Editor Patricia Bauer!
Get lost, 2019.
Don't let us down, 2020.
Going to do everything I can to make sure we're celebrating at the end of this year rather than crying/moving.
Hope you and yours have had a wonderful holiday and that your new year is full of peace and prosperity.
New publication from our research group in @NatureHumBehav showing that meta-analyses substantially overestimate effect sizes and that commonly used methods for bias adjustment do not substantively improve results: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-019-0787-z
