A manifesto for reproducible science

Last modified: November 8, 2018

‘Reproducible research practices are at the heart of sound research and integral to the scientific method.’ However, research has shown that the practice of reproducibility faces many challenges that are both cultural and systematic. The question has been raised to what extend these challenges can be met…

In this manifesto the authors make a case for optimism. They propose several measures that, according to them, ‘constitute practical and achievable steps towards improving rigor and reproducibility.’ They argue that the adoption of these measures can help to optimize many of the key elements of the scientific process, such as methods, reporting and dissemination, reproducibility, evaluation and incentives.
