2018.03.05 - The "Reproducibility Crisis" and the Reporting of Science (Franklin Sayre)
From Margaret Celebrezze
In recent years, evidence has emerged from disciplines ranging from biology to economics that many scientific studies are not reproducible. This evidence has led to declarations in both the scientific and lay press that science is experiencing a “reproducibility crisis” and that this crisis has significant impacts on both science and society, including misdirected effort, funding, and policy implemented on the basis of irreproducible research. In this presentation Franklin Sayre, Pharmacy Librarian, and Amy Riegelman, Social Sciences Librarian, focus on how increased transparency in the reporting of research can support reproducibility. To do this they draw on major guidelines from funders and scientific societies and share methods and tools that support transparency and improved reporting.
