Replication is one of the main principles of the scientific method. In the physical sciences, new knowledge is often not considered valid until the original study has been replicated in other labs and the original results are not refuted Replication will either improve confidence in our research findings or identify important boundary conditions. Replications also enhance various scientific processes and offer methodical and educational improvements. The purpose of this panel is twofold. First, to explore the opportunities for scientific development that replication research enables by reflecting on the experiences of encouraging, doing, and publishing replication studies. Second, to explore the various challenges that replication research raises about its value to individual scholars as well as to our collective understanding of phenomena within the information systems field.
