Reproducibility of Research Results (Aug 2017)

The reproducibility of research findings is a growing topic of interest for researchers, professional communities, funding agencies, and others. This is occurring in part because researchers in many disciplines are struggling to reproduce findings obtained during prior studies or reported in the scholarly literature. Many initiatives are starting to emerge to combat this problem.  For example, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has put forward a collection of guidelines and resources on its Rigor and Reproducibility website.

Forthcoming CITI Program Module 

Importantly, the CITI Program is developing a forthcoming module for the RCR Basic course on the reproducibility of research results. The module will serve as an introduction to the topic for researchers at any career stage. It will cover key and timely issues, including factors that contribute to the lack of reproducibility and practices that can increase the likelihood of research findings being reproduced. This module will be available to subscribing organizations for no additional fee, and once launched, it can be added to any learner group.
