Making Research Reproducible: A Call for Action

Catalyst Arnaud Vaganay will give a talk on research reproducibility at TU Delft on April 4, 2018.

Reproducibility should be the minimum standard for the publication of scientific results. Yet recent attempts to reproduce published results in several disciplines have shown that a large number of studies still fall short of this norm. The aim of this presentation will be to address four questions:

  1. How bad is the problem?
  2. What are the factors driving or hindering reproducibility?
  3. What can be done about it?
  4. What might happen if we fail?

The main findings from the latest research across several disciplines will be presented. Their individual and organizational implications will be briefly discussed.
