| |As the result of a mandate from Congress, the National Academies will 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 reproducibility and replication, review current activities to improve reproducibility and replication highlighting examples of good practices, and examine factors that adversely affect reproducibility and replication.
The study is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
