Survey in Nature Reports on How Scientists View the “Reproducibility Crisis”

From the article “1500 Scientists lift the lid on reproducibility” published in Nature: “More than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments. Those are some of the telling figures that emerged from Nature‘s survey of 1,576 researchers who took a brief online questionnaire on reproducibility in research.”
Other questions explored in the survey included: (i) Is there a reproducibility crisis in science?”, (ii) “How much published work in your field is reproducible?”, (iii) “Have you failed to reproduce an experiment”, and (iv) “Have you ever tried to publish a reproduction attempt?”. Respondents came from a wide variety of subject areas including chemistry, biology, physics and engineering, medicine, and earth and environmental sciences.  To read more, click here.
