The research reproducibility problem solicits a 21st century solution

Shanghai 1

Reproducibility is a hallmark of scientific efforts. Estimates indicate that lack of reproducibility of data ranges from 50% to 90% among published research reports. The inability to reproduce major findings of published data confounds new discoveries, and more importantly, results in wastage of limited resources in the futile effort to build on these published reports. This poses a challenge to the research community to change the way we approach reproducibility by developing new tools to help progress the reliability of methods and materials we use in our trade. This session will discuss means for the elucidation of research results reproducibility elements based on a model of publication that engages and rewards all scientists.
