Reproducibility and Replicability in Science

RR small coverReleased in May 2019, this Consensus Study Report offers definitions of reproducibility and replicability and examines the factors that may lead to non-reproducibility and non-replicability in research. While reproducibility is straightforward and should generally be expected, replicability is more nuanced, and in some cases a lack of replicability can aid the process of scientific discovery. The report provides recommendations to researchers, academic institutions, journals, and funders on steps they can take to improve reproducibility and replicability in science.

Proceedings of a Workshop—in Brief
Behavioral Economics and the Promotion of Health Among Aging Populations

Behavioral EconomicsThis publication from the Board on Behavioral, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences summarizes a workshop held June 2018 to discuss behavioral economics research and how to expand such research to be of benefit to older and middle-aged adults. The workshop looked at successful applications of the research; how to make them more effective; and focused on identifying approaches that could generate long-term benefits in areas of interest to the National Institute on Aging, such as decreasing sedentary behavior, promoting volunteering and social engagement, improving medical regimen adherence, and reducing inappropriate use of opioids and using opioids when medically necessary.
