replication study

  • reproduction study
German: Replikationsstudie
Japanese: 再現研究

An experiment is repeated in order to verify the results of a previous study

Under identical conditions the same experiments are expected to yield the same results. A study is considered a replication study if it explicitly refers to a previous study to check its results or aims at the same objectives. A change of individual test parameters is permitted. Depending on the degree of these modifications a study may be called a replication study or considered a (new) main study.
