Outside the natural sciences, the frequency of replications varies. Given this inconsistency, it was important to understand how much of the Human Factors research was being replicated and how often replications were being conducted. Our results suggested that Human Factors researchers are conducting replications of their own work, as well as the work of others. However, these replications may not be labeled as such. Also, our findings revealed that not all original findings have been replicated. Therefore, it is important for researchers to be cautious of any finding that has not been replicated.
