The Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology aims to get a better, quantitative estimate of the reproducibility of important work and to understand the challenges such efforts present. Begun in 2013, the project is run jointly by the Center for Open Science (COS) in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Science Exchange in Palo Alto, California.
A new version of ReproZip has been released, adding some bugfixes and options to pass environment variables to the experiment.
Brian Nosek of the University of Virginia and the Center for Open Science talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the Reproducibility Project.
According to a 2013 report from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, $115 billion is spent annually in the United States on life science research. Fifty percent of this total is spent on preclinical research, half of which—$28 billion—is not reproducible.
Panelists discuss reproducibility, data-sharing, and encouraging early-career researchers at this year’s World Science Forum.
This is a demo video showing how to pack and unpack experiments with ReproZip.
