This article provides insights into barriers to replication research and presents an agenda identifying “who” should do “what” to robustly advance knowledge in disciplines of advertising and marketing. A Delphi study, showing consensus of opinion among international experts in the replication process—authors, editors, and reviewers—is presented. The study engages the problem from a triadic perspective and highlights differences in thinking among these stakeholder groups. In presenting an agenda for collective action, the article seeks to stimulate debate regarding the merits of undertaking and publishing replication research in enhancing the credibility of the theoretical foundations of our disciplines.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
