Metadata annotation is key to reproducibility in sequencing experiments. Reproducing this research using the scripts provided will also show the current level of annotation in years since 2015 when the paper was published.
- This paper is a good example of a standard social science study that is (I hope!) fully reproducible, from main analysis, to supplementary analyses and figures. - I have not yet received any external feedback w.r.t. its reproducibility, so would be interested to see if I have overlooked any gaps in the reproduction workflow that I anticipated.
The results of the individual studies (4) could be interpreted in support for the hypothesis, but the meta-analysis suggested that implicit identification was not a useful predictor overall. This conclusion is an important goalpost for future work.
I guess it could be a cool learning experience. The paper is written with knitr, uses a seed, is part of the R package it describes, was openly written using version control (SVN, R-Forge) and is available in an open access journal (@up_jors).
