Problems with the status quo

What's happening

  • Half of the research is never published, and it's generally when interventions have failed. 

  • Researchers are able to change their hypotheses and analysis to make their results seem more impressive because they don't commit to how their hypotheses and analyses ahead of time

  • Most researchers don't share their data publicly so it's impossible to check their work or to pool related work together.

How this hurts the field

  • Original authors report effect sizes double that of the people who replicate their studies i.e. the interventions seemed only half as effective as originally reported.
     

  • Most studies have multiple errors in their statistics only uncovered years after they are first published
     

  • It becomes impossible to correct for multiple testing because too few people report their hypotheses ahead of time.​​

Their Consequnces

What we're doing differently

We commit to..

  • publish all of our research regardless of the results
     

  • share all of our (anonymised) data, and the code used to analyse it, publicly.
     

  • to publicly share our hypotheses and how we plan to test them before we finish gathering our data

Perinatal Depression

~38% of women in some LMICs suffer from depression before and after birth. We think that it might be possible to treat them by having volunteers talk them through an ACT workbook..
