Slides from a presentation, "Failure to Reproduce: The Replication Crisis in Research — Can Librarians Help?," presented at the 2018 ACRL New England Chapter Annual Conference, Failing Forward: Experimentation and Creativity in Libraries, on May 4, 2018 in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
A recent survey by Nature found that 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! Learn more about the “reproducibility crisis” in research and how librarians are helping by teaching researchers about reproducible workflows, proper management of code and data, and tools like the Open Science Framework.
