White House Calls for Comments on Reproducible Research

The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has released a request for information on improving the reproducibility of federally funded scientific research.

Given recent evidence of the irreproducibility of a surprising number of published scientific findings, how can the Federal Government leverage its role as a significant funder of scientific research to most effectively address the problem?

A similar request for comments posted by the OSTP on open-access research resulted in policies mandating federally-funded research be made publicly accessible.

To submit comments email innovationstrategy@ostp.gov by September 23rd.
