“What is truth? said jesting Pilate, and would not stay for an answer”—Francis Bacon (1601/1942, p. 3)
In their focal article, Kepes and McDaniel (2013) provide recommendations to improve the trustworthiness and accuracy of scientific literature in industrial–organizational (I–O) psychology. These recommendations include frequent examples from the medical field and suggest that I–O psychology should emulate these methods. However, funding, political, and cultural norms are significantly different between these fields. For example, external grants that supplement medical funding focus on how the research can be effectively put into practice (Briner & Rousseau, 2011). This commentary extends the focal article's recommendations by providing potential first steps in an incremental change process toward the ideas discussed by Kepes and McDaniel. We emphasize research designs that can improve causal knowledge and expand two recommendations from the focal article: creating research registries and replicating studies. In doing so, we aim to make suggestions that are more applicable by only providing examples and implementation ideas from other psychology and organizational science disciplines.
