Stephen discussed some of the very substantive policy changes implemented at Psych Science beginning with prior editor Eric Eich. These include an emphasis on effect sizes, requirements for sample-size justification, and badges for different open-science practices. Although these stringent requirements reduced submissions somewhat, they are having a real impact, hopefully towards better replicability.
