What methods/stages, approach or guides should be used in order to conduct replication process of psychological studies?

How this should be evaluated in order to minimalize false positives? Especially when direct replications are not likely to be conducted or some null results occur.

Pity that it was closed, as it was well explained in [The Reproducibility of Psychological Science - The Open Science Collaboration](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tsG8m5qKv70xkoaYIKoEmNBvwqQhhWHc9jVhTbj6vIQ). It could result in nice summary of key points.

This seems overly broad. Psychology studies are exceedingly diverse. I'm not sure what one could say beyond, "Describe what you do in really exquisite detail, because you probably are overlooking something that affects the results."

I would recommend using the guide produced by the Center for Open Science's Psychology Reproducibility Project. You may also benefit from browsing their wiki for the project.
