Pure Replication Completed

This page lists all 3ie replication programme studies with completed pure replications.

3ie defines pure replication as the attempt by replication researchers to reproduce the original results using the same data and published methodology from the original paper. After review and comments from the internal and external project advisors, these replications studies will be revised and completed.
