From the Public Library of Science (PLOS) comes this extensive collection of articles and papers related to meta-research in the field of biology. To put it simply, meta-research is research about research. More specifically, meta-research investigates ways to improve research practices in order to "improve the quality and reliability of scientific research." In this collection, biological meta-research is sorted into seven categories, including Methods, Reporting, Sources of Bias, and Reproducibility. Within these collections, visitors will find a number of papers relating a variety of topics, including the importance of blind data (July 2015), gender representation on the boards of mathematical journals (August 2016), and a study candidly titled "How Many Scientists Fabricate and Falsify Research? A Systematic Review and Meta-data of Survey Data."
