Abstract: This study examines the effect of negative replications on the citation rates of replicated studies. We study a set of 204 replicated studies in economics and compare their citation performance with an initial sample of 112,000 potential controls taken from Scopus. From this initial pool, we match each replicated study with multiple controls based on having comparable citation histories. We have two main findings. First, studies that are replicated receive somewhat more citations than their matched control studies. Second, there is no evidence that studies that receive negative replications suffer a penalty in the form of fewer citations.
