New milestone: 800+ claims assessed!
The repliCATS team have had a very busy November 2019!
First, we ran a 100-person workshop before the inaugural Association for Interdisciplinary Meta-research and Open Science on 6 November 2019 at the University of Melbourne.
Of course, there were tim tams, prizes and a whole lot of energy at the pre-AIMOS workshop.
Yesterday we evaluated 200 published papers from various disciplines (political science, education, law,etc.) to judge their replicability. Science is evolving and its amazing to be a part of it!

Then we were in Wellington (New Zealand) where we ran a smaller workshop with the lovely folk over in psychology the following week!
Thanks to this amazing group of people @VicUniWgtn we've assessed 800+ claims! Also, Wellington blew us away, occasionally literally🍃🍃 #repliCATS #repliCATSbus #SCORE pic.twitter.com/lRGL4bOpgQ

What’s next for the repliCATS team?
We’re busy tweaking our platform, and in early December 2019 we plan to launch a fully remote platform! This means groups of people can participate virtually from anywhere in the world – this could be as individuals looking for claims they are interested in assessing to journal clubs or discussion groups picking claims to work on together.
