wetenschap24: Opvolger-van--Diederik-Stapel-is-bekend

Het is een brede theorie over menselijke waarneming en informatieverwerking, waarin doorgaans twee polen te onderscheiden zouden zijn: globale verwerking en locale verwerking. Een simpel voorbeeld is de Navon-taak, met het soort figuurtje dat ook in zijn tests gebruikt wordt: Globaal bekeken staat hier een letter H, lokaal bekeken staan er dertien letters L. Deze conceptuele tweedeling verklaart GLOMO van toepassing op vrijwel het complete scala van mentale activiteiten, met associaties als: Dalejbarr : Trial by p-values: Preliminary...

Volgende sociale psycholoog struikelt - de zaak Förster - Kloptdatwel? by @pjvanerp

Het Landelijk Orgaan Wetenschappelijke Integriteit oordeelt dat professor Jens Förster, verbonden aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam, in minstens één artikel data heeft gebruikt, die eigenlijk niet op een normale wijze verkregen kan zijn. De gegevens zijn te ‘perfect’ en bevatten veel minder ruis dan je normaal verwacht bij het soort experimenten dat Förster uitvoerde.

Jens Förster Begin 2012 publiceerde Förster een artikel in Social Psychological and Personality Science onder de titel Sense Creative!

Replication Effort Provokes Praise—And 'Bullying' Charges. After a string of scandals involving accusations of misconduct and retracted papers, social psychology is engaged in intense self-examination—and the process is turning out to be painful.

Replication Effort Provokes Praise—And 'Bullying' Charges

This week, a global network of nearly 100 researchers unveiled the results of an effort to replicate 27 well-known studies in the field. In more than half of the cases, the result was a partial or complete failure. As the replicators see it, the failed do-overs are a healthy corrective. Trial by p-values: Preliminary thoughts on the Jens Förster report | DATAHOWLER. I’ve just had a quick look at the report (available at Retraction Watch) that led to the investigation of Jens Förster for possible data manipulation.

Trial by p-values: Preliminary thoughts on the Jens Förster report | DATAHOWLER

It makes the case that the data in three of Förster’s papers are statistically highly improbable, largely due to the fact that the means for the levels of various three-level factors all tend to fall in a straight line. There are also claims about the data being far too consistent across independent studies, of effect sizes being implausibly large, and demographically implausible samples. It is dry, depressing reading. From the comments I’ve seen on Retraction Watch and Twitter, some people are already convinced. For my part, I’m reserving judgment until the psychological/statistical community has time to complete its “post-publication peer review” of the report.

"Here we go again," another lamented. Scientists here are still searching their souls about two previous scandals—involving Diederik Stapel of the Tilburg University in 2011 and Dirk Smeesters of Erasmus University in Rotterdam a year later. Now they have learned that a national research integrity panel has found evidence of data manipulation in the work of Jens Förster, a social psychologist at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

The university has already announced that it will request the retraction of one of Förster's articles. The case is drawing widespread international attention as well, in part because Förster, who's German and came to Amsterdam in 2007, enjoys a sterling reputation.

The University of Amsterdam has called for the retraction of a 2011 paper by two psychology researchers after a school investigation concluded that the article contained bogus data, the Dutch press are reporting.

New Dutch psychology scandal? Inquiry cites data manipulation, calls for retraction

The paper, “Sense Creative! The Impact of Global and Local Vision, Hearing, Touching, Tasting and Smelling on Creative and Analytic Thought,” was written by Jens Förster and Markus Denzler and published in Social Psychological & Personality Science. It purported to find that: Holistic (global) versus elemental (local) perception reflects a prominent distinction in psychology; however, so far it has almost entirely been examined in the domain of vision.

Current work suggests that global/local processing styles operate across sensory modalities. Social psychologist Förster denies misconduct, calls charge “terrible misjudgment” Retraction Watch has obtained an email from Jens Förster, the social psychologist in the Netherlands who, as Dutch media reported this week, was the target of a misconduct investigation at the University of Amsterdam.

Social psychologist Förster denies misconduct, calls charge “terrible misjudgment”

The inquiry led to the call for the retraction of a paper by Förster and a colleague, Markus Denzler, over concerns of data manipulation. Förster denies those claims and said Denzler was not involved in the heavy lifting for the study in question: This is an English translation of my reaction to a newspaper article that appeared in the Dutch newspaper NRC about me.Today, an article appeared in the Dutch newspaper “NRC” summarizing an investigation on my academic integrity that was opened in September 2012. The case was opened because a colleague from the methodology department at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) observed some regularities in data of three articles that are supposedly highly unlikely.

As we reported earlier, Förster has denied any wrongdoing in the matter. But as the report makes clear, investigators caught several red flags in Förster’s work.

Hij is een grote naam in de sociale psychologie, veel groter dan Diederik Stapel ooit was. Cursor TU/e: Statisticus: “UvA-hoogleraar is oplichter of volkomen incompetent”  6 mei 2014 Afgelopen week werd bekend dat een wetenschappelijk artikel van UvA-hoogleraar Jens Förster wordt teruggetrokken, omdat de data gemanipuleerd zijn. Hij is een grote naam in de sociale psychologie, veel groter dan Diederik Stapel ooit was. Deze maand zou hij een onderzoekspremie van vijf miljoen euro krijgen om aan een Duitse universiteit Humboldt-professor te worden, maar dat gaat voorlopig niet door.

Förster voelt zich het slachtoffer van een ongelooflijke heksenjacht in de nasleep van de Stapel-affaire, zegt hij in een verklaring.

Gill1109 : @RonDotsch @notPICNIC Indeed! Jjolij : @gill1109 @RonDotsch @notPICNIC... Förster report cites “unavoidable” conclusion of data manipulation. Jens Förster Last week we wrote about the 2012 complaint that triggered the investigation into Jens Förster, the social psychologist at the University of Amsterdam whose work has come under scrutiny for possible fraud.

Now we have the findings of the official investigation by Landelijk Orgaan Wetenschappelijke Integriteit (the Dutch National Board for Scientific Integrity, often referred to as LOWI) — which clearly indicates that the institution believes Förster made up results. Here are some of the highlights from the document, which we’ve had translated by a Dutch speaker: “According to the LOWI, the conclusion that manipulation of the research data has taken place is unavoidable […] intervention must have taken place in the presentation of the results of the … experiment”“The analyses of the expert … did add to [the Complainant's report] that these linear patterns were specific for the primary analyses in the … article and did not show in subsets of the data, such as gender groups.

“I never manipulated data”: Förster defends actions in open letter. Jens Förster, the Dutch social psychologist accused of misconduct, has posted an open letter on his lab’s website in which he denies wrongdoing. The letter, in English and dated May 11, offers a detailed rebuttal to the investigation’s conclusions. It also offers a rationale for Förster’s decision not to post his data on the Internet. And it’s followed by a briefer letter from Nira Liberman, who identifies herself as a collaborator of Förster’s. JelteWicherts : Mmm. I wonder where Jens Förster...

Uri Simonsohn Data Colada | [21] Fake-Data Colada. Recently, a psychology paper (.pdf) was flagged as possibly fraudulent based on statistical analyses (.pdf). The author defended his paper (.html), but the university committee investigating misconduct concluded it had occurred (.pdf). In this post we present new and more intuitive versions of the analyses that flagged the paper as possibly fraudulent.

We then rule out p-hacking among other benign explanation. Excessive linearityThe whistleblowing report pointed out the suspicious paper had excessively linear results.
