Below I describe the process through which I have evaluated paper. Before doing so, I wish to emphasize that I remain agnostic to the truth of allegations against Francesca Gino, and have not seen sufficient public evidence of intentional manipulation or data fraud to warrant suspicion in any other paper on which Francesca Gino is a coauthor.  I am hopeful that as more information is revealed from the secret HBS investigation, more definitive conclusions can be reached. Nevertheless, I am evaluating my papers carefully now for transparency reaons, to best of my abilities and available data.

I have been unable to locate the data from these studies, because I cannot locate any of my inbox emails from 2010. I know the data was sent to me by Francesca Gino in xls format in June, 2010, because I do have all my sent emails from 2010 requesting the data and know that Francesca has always shared requested data with me on these projects as well as the many projects we abandoned (including a fully written paper) because we found no effects or problems in our design. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of the analysis or data, but like with many behavioral papers, the data no longer exist. I am continuing to search for archived emails from 2010 to complete a replication of results and forensic analysis.

As always, carefully designed and interpreted replication studies are welcomed as part of good science. I am willing to support any such effort as I would with any paper.
