Lecture at KI by Professor John P.A. Ioannidis

Reproducibility challenges towards improving the evidence base for modern science

May 12 at 15.30-16.45
Wallenberg hall, Nobel Forum, Karolinska Institutet

The lecture will overview the current status on research on reproducibility across diverse scientific fields. Reproducibility of methods, results, and inferences will be discussed. Empirical data suggest that there is less than optimal reproducibility in many scientific fields. This poses challenges in trusting and building upon the accumulated evidence. Solutions for improving reproducibility and credible evidence will be discussed.
