    Reconstructing Recent Work on Macrosocial Stress as a Research Program.Erich H. Witte & Frank Zenker - 2016 - Basic and Applied Social Psychology 38 (6):301-307.
    We reconstruct recent work on macrosocial stress as if it were an instance of a research strategy that tests point-alternative hypotheses within a full-fledged research program. Because this strategy is free of various deficits that beset dominant strategies, our article demonstrates one way in which the confidence crisis may be overcome.

    Data replication matters to an underpowered study, but replicated hypothesis corroboration counts.Erich H. Witte & Frank Zenker - 2018 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 41.
    Before replication becomes mainstream, the potential for generating theoretical knowledge better be clear. Replicating statistically significant nonrandom data shows that an original study made a discovery; replicating a specified theoretical effect shows that an original study corroborated a theory. Yet only in the latter case is replication a necessary, sound, and worthwhile strategy.

    A New Empirical Approach to Intercultural Comparisons of Value Preferences Based on Schwartz’s Theory.Erich H. Witte, Adrian Stanciu & Klaus Boehnke - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11:463967.
    Empirical tests of Schwartz’s theory of culture-level value priorities have predominantly been performed using an averaging approach–as values of the average individual in a culture. However, from a theory of measurement standpoint such an approach seems inadequate. We argue that the averaging approach is an insufficiently accurate methodology in capturing the compatibilities-incompatibilities between values of individuals within cultures. We propose an approach based on the distribution of values of individuals in a given culture–the distribution approach. Using data from two rounds (...)
