Lectures and seminars Redefining research quality: The reproducibility challenge
Lecture by John P. A. Ioannidis
C. F. Rehnborg Professor in Disease Prevention
Stanford University School of Medicine
We are in the midst of what some have called a "research reproducibility crisis". While scientific discovery and complexity are developing at an unprecedented speed, less than 50% of scientific research studies can be reliably replicated. Left unchecked, this troubling fact may threaten our ability to generate sound, evidence-based knowledge that meets society’s needs. It is time to look beyond the traditional measures of quality and re-examine the very concept of quality itself.
Professor John Ioannidis is among today's top international experts in the field, expanding our understanding of the urgent need for better research quality, soundness, replicability, study designs and statistical methods.
By deeply examining the issues that threaten the soundness of scientific research, we can begin to take greater responsibility for fostering the very best academic research practice.
