    The reliability of a study is very important and I think you’re right to suggest that it must be replicable in order for the reliability to be tested and so that the outcomes can be properly assessed and then if possible used within society. For example Milgram’s study was made replicable and was replicated however with sight variations. By being able to replicate it, it allowed researchers to expore ways in which to reduce blind obedience. For example, in one variation there was another experimentor in the room who argued with the other, saying that the participant should stop, this meant that 0% went up to 450v whereas in the original 60% went to 450v and 100% to at least 300v. If the experiment had not been made replicable it would not be possible to see what could be having an effect on the results.
