Jon Tennant --- Reproducibility: Or, how I learned to stop worrying and love Open Science

Abstract: You can barely go anywhere within research these days without hearing the term ‘reproducibility crisis’. It is becoming more and more common for meta-analyses of research to fail to reproduce key discoveries within the scholarly literature. At the same time, researchers are under increasing pressure to ‘publish or perish’, more ...
