Abstract:In the last decade, there has been a heightened interest in reproducibility and also a perception of a replication crisis across diverse scientific fields. Concurrently, there are many initiatives that have tried to made research work in a more open, sharing environment. Several empirical efforts have tried to assess the reproducibility of research findings. Moreover, multiple surveys have assessed the prevalence and evolution over time of research practices that enhance transparency and, hopefully, also reproducibility. These include, but are not limited to, data sharing, code/algorithm sharing, protocol registration, declarations of conflict and funding, and use of better powered studies and better methods. The lecture will explore current evolutions in the areas of reproducible, open, transparent research and the lessons learned from diverse scientific fields.
