This is episode 2 of our special series on the crisis of reproducibility in scientific research. Now that we’ve covered the “what” of the reproducibility crisis, it’s time to talk about the “why”. Why would scientists engage in practices that compromise the integrity of science?
In this eight-episode podcast series, we interview several experts about “the reproducibility crisis” and how they think the culture of science plays into that. We dig into questions about academic incentives, publishing and funding practices, training and mentorship, how the media plays into the problem, and finally, what we can do to fix things.
If you’re interested in using this series in your undergraduate or graduate courses, free lesson guides are available for each episode.
