For example, high specification of methods ensures that others can replicate a researcher’s findings. Or, another researcher may see a confounding variable in those methods that was not apparent to the original theorist. At times, researchers find strong support for an opposing theory. These unexpected findings are themselves compelling evidence for science as a selfcorrecting enterprise. Other practices, such as peer review, work to lessen the chance that science will be blinded in important ways by the perspective of the scientist.
