Getting some results in one research study is nice, but as scientists we like to make sure of the findings. To be more sure we replicate studies, which means that the study is conducted again in the same way but using different participants. This allows us to retest the subject matter and also to find out if the results can generalize to other participants and maybe even other situations.
