Is social psychology self-correcting?
I have a new essay up at Heterodox Academy discussing the claim that science is self-correcting. I also dig a bit more into what we mean by "bias".
As a reminder, Heterodox Academy is a motley crew of scholars concerned about ideological conformity and intolerance in modern academia. We're privileged to have Jon Haidt, Steven Pinker, Phil Tetlock, Judith Curry, Scott Lilienfeld, Amy Wax, Lee Jussim, Jarret Crawford, and many other outstanding scholars.

I work in one of the best hospitals in the country. Our Dr. Peter Pronovost has recently begun a program of seeking out and destroying causes of patient harm due to provider errors. His program is having remarkable success in other hospitals around the world.

The link to your essay, '"On the 'science is self correcting' idea" leads to a 404 "no results found" page. A search on the site for the post yields no results. It appears to have been removed.

"Social psychology doesn’t have a systematic account of these kids of research biases,"
