Based on these findings, ACEEL researchers, agricultural education journal editors, and research professionals tasked with performing journal article reviews should consider how including a description of coder credentials could enhance the consistency, transparency, replicability, rigor, and integrity of ACEEL research.
In order to use this data in a RAD manner, however, researchers in the field need to better articulate and understand the principle of replicability.
(See sample table below.) The table fits in well with the seventh Barcelona Principle: "Transparency and replicability are paramount to sound measurement." After all, not all aggregators and analyses are created equal, and some apply bespoke techniques or algorithms rather than put out a transparent process.
This should therefore increase the replicability of the embossed substrates.
In my experience, the majority of qualitative psychologists do not see replicability as a criterion they aspire to or consider their work should be judged against.
Replicability. For administrative alliances to be successful, they must include replicable components.
JC: In this type of convergent offering, replicability problems may arise not only from the telecom access side, but also from the content side.
First is the issue of replicability and generalizability.
Details about issues such as participant selection, interview content, data recording, and analytic methods are largely missing, creating questions about the authenticity and credibility of the findings, as well as limiting replicability by others who may wish to study this topic.
* Replicability of pivotal studies (consistency across studies)
Note that the right end of each of the above taxonomic dimensions--articulable, observable in use, simple, and independent--indicates that replicability is easier and, ceteris paribus, appropriability lower.
In the privately funded larger buildings category, a small office and showroom building on a rather obscure corner of central Athens designed by Demetrios Issaias and Tassis Papaioannou was chosen as prize winner, because of its modesty and its replicability. Its veiled, layered facades were environmentally appropriate for the climate, and provided a scale that could make a gentle city of great variety and flexibility (unlike most commercial buildings in Athens, or indeed in any other city).
