https://thenewstatistics.com/itns/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/APS-Editor%E2%80%99s-Perspective.pdf, The Editor’s Perspective by Stephen Lindsay. 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.
