A team led by Brian Nosek A team led by Brian Nosek repeated a hundred well-known psychology experiments, and found a statistically significant result in less than half. (“Estimating the reproducibility of psychological science,” Science, 28 August 2015, 349:6251.) This sounds somewhat misleading; “a hundred well-known experiments” implies that they were particularly famous or important studies, but the selection criteria was “articles published in 2008 in three important psychology journals, for which we could find replication teams with relevant interests and expertise”. Most of the studies in question had been cited less than a hundred times; one had as few as 6 citations. ( https://osf.io/fgjvw/ ) In fairness to psychology, it might also be worth noting that at least one project to specifically investigate famous and well-known findings ended up replicating all of them ( https://digest.bps.org.uk/2017/06/05/these-nine-cognitive-psychology-fin… ).
