The Archival Project

The Archival Project is an online classroom where students' knowledge drives scientific discovery. Become part of a crowdsourced research project to measure the rate of replication in psychology, and in the process, learn how to analyze scientific publications.


The Archival Project is designed to code articles from the first three months of three 2008 psychology journals. Our aim is to objectively assess research and replication practices and seek to improve them across disciplines.


The Archival Project is an online, distributed initiative of the Open Science Collaboration, seeking to leverage the time and knowledge of both students and research professionals for common benefit.

We're sponsored by the Center for Open Science, a non-profit dedicated to the advocacy of openness, integrity and reproducibility of scientific research.
