Reproducibility and Replicability in Science

As this report from the National Academies Press notes, "One of the pathways by which the scientific community confirms the validity of a new scientific discovery is by repeating the research that produced it." Requested by the US Congress in response to concerns about scientific rigor, the consensus study report Reproducibility and Replicability in Science was published in May 2019. This report "defines reproducibility and replicability and examines the factors that may lead to non-reproducibility and non-replicability in research," and it also "provides recommendations to researchers, academic institutions, journals, and funders on steps they can take to improve reproducibility and replicability in science." Interested readers can view the entire 218-page report online or download it as a PDF at the link above for free. Readers will also find a number of supporting resources that may be of interest, such as a flier entitled "10 Things to Know About Reproducibility and Replicability," report highlights tailored for social and behavioral scientists, and an hour-long recorded public briefing webinar featuring a discussion with several of the report's committee members.
