Evaluation of the Minerva Research Initiative
Released in October 2019, this report discusses the program's successes and challenges over its first decade of operation, and highlights ways to strengthen the program’s foundations and take advantage of opportunities for broadening its reach and usefulness.
|Reproducibility and Replicability in Science|
Released 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.
|A Decadal Survey of the Social and Behavioral Sciences: A Research Agenda for Advancing Intelligence Analysis|
Released in March 2019, this Consensus Study Report from the Board on Behavioral, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences recommends that the intelligence community (IC) make sustained collaboration with researchers in the social and behavioral sciences (SBS) a key priority as it develops research objectives for the coming decade.
