Improving replicability in addiction research Robert West University College London 1 The problem Replicability is the extent to which reported study findings are repeated when what is believed to be essentially the same study is repeated It is hampered by

Poorly defined constructs (e.g., craving, stress, recovery) Poorly specified models (e.g., unclear causal pathways) Weak measurement (e.g., use of self-report scales with low validity) Inconsistent/incomplete reporting (e.g., regarding intervention content) Inappropriate analyses (e.g., cherry picking comparisons) Bias in reporting and dissemination (e.g., file drawer problem) 2 Clarifying constructs Develop an addiction ontology setting out key terms, definitions and relationships using an established model Small section of

putative addiction ontology 3 Specifying models Develop a common model building system that clearly sets out what constructs are included, how they are defined and how they relate to each other Transtheoretical Model expressed in standard form 4

Improving measurement Develop and use a database of measures with indices of reliability and validity Construct label Measure name Validity index Sources Cigarette craving QSU

Improving analysis Promote the use of the Open Science Framework and other resources to pre-specify analysis plans and record analysis history 7 Reducing reporting bias Extend trial registration to all major study types and establish an efficient system for linking study reports to registered protocols, automatically recording protocol deviations Extend competing interest reporting to non-commercial types and automate the process of coding these to allow their assessment in meta-regressions 8 Next steps
