Letter in Nature Announces New Reproduction and Replication Journal

[Excerpt taken from “New journal for reproduction and replication results”, correspondence by Etienne Roesch and Nicolas Rougier published in Nature]
“More incentive is needed to spur investigation into replication issues and null results (see Nature 578, 489–490; 2020). For example, experienced scientists could encourage junior researchers to allocate part of their time to verifying other researchers’ results, which would also provide them with essential insights into the scientific method. To support such ventures, we are launching ReScienceX, a free-to-publish and free-to-read, peer-reviewed journal that will be devoted to reproduction and replication experiments.”
