David Allison, dean, School of Public Health, Indiana University-Bloomington, and a member of the committee that wrote a 2019 National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report on reproducibility and replicability in science, will appear before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on November 13 to discuss the report’s recommendations and findings.
The report found that while computational reproducibility in scientific research is generally expected when the original data and code are available, replicability of research is more nuanced. Successful replication does not guarantee that the original scientific results of a study were correct, nor does a single failed replication conclusively refute the original study’s claims. The report recommends ways that researchers, academic institutions, journals, and funders should help strengthen rigor and transparency in order to improve the reproducibility and replicability of scientific research.
The hearing, Strengthening Transparency or Silencing Science? The Future of Science in EPA Rulemaking will be webcast on November 13, 10 am, EST.
