Reproducibility and Replicability in Science
    
 
ReproducibilityAs the result of a congressional mandate, the National Science Foundation has asked the National Academies to explore the issues of reproducibility and replication in scientific and engineering research. The committee will explore what is known and identify areas that may need more information to ascertain the extent of reproducibly and replication, review current activities to improve reproducibly and replication highlighting examples of good practices, and examine factors that adversely affect reproducibly and replication.
