ReplicationBF: An R-Package to calculate Replication Bayes Factors

Some months ago I’ve written a manuscript how to calculate Replication Bayes factors for replication studies involving F-tests as is usually the case for ANOVA-type studies.

After a first round of peer review, I have revised the manuscript and updated all the R scripts. I have a written a small R-Package to have all functions in a single package. You can find the package at my GitHub repository. Thanks to devtools and  Roxygen2, the documentation should contain the most important information on how to use the functions. Reading the original paper and my extension should help clarifying the underlying considerations and how to apply the RBF in a given situation.

I will update the preprint at arXiv soon too and add some more theoretical notes here on the blog about my perspective on the use of Bayes factors. In the meantime you might as well be interested in Ly et al.’s updated approach to the Replication Bayes factor, which is not yet covered in either my manuscript nor the R-package.

Please post bugs and problems with the R package to the issue tracker at GitHub.
