Reproducibility: The Basics

Reproducibility. Replicability. They're terms that keep popping up as the scientific community discusses how best to ensure that published research is robust and reliable. Brian Nosek, a psychology professor at the University of Virgina and the president and director for the Center for Open Science, discussed what those terms mean, what the challenges are for the scientific community and some ways that research organizations can move forward toward creating new incentives for reproducing experiments.
