When researchers at the Center for Open Science reran 100 experiments that had been published in prestigious psychology journals, they found that nearly two-thirds of them didn’t hold up the second time.
The people behind the initiative say this is just the beginning of the conversation about how the culture of science publishing can make it harder to do careful and rigorous scientific research.
Michael Pitts and Melissa Lewis were part of this massive study, and they’ll join us to discuss how this new finding affects the way scientists do their work.
