REPLICATION

One of the main tenets of the scientific method; repeating an experiment to ensure that the results can be attained again. May use an exact duplicate of an experiment or an alternative procedure, or completely different techniques may be used to try to gather theoretical information. See also: balanced replication.

REPLICATION: "Replication helps to ensure that an outcome for an experiment is not a fluke."
