2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 4D: Leveraging Technology…
Multiple published reports suggest that scientific research and education is now confronting a reproducibility crisis wherein scientists are unable to reproduce up to 80% of the results found in published studies. This failure in scholarly communication has led to enormous amounts of inefficiency, inefficacy, and frustration for researchers, professors, and students worldwide. Scientific publishing must evolve to better accommodate the evolution of science. This session will explore technologies such as novel uses of video (JoVE), methods and data repositories (such as GitHub and Open Science Framework), and open-access scientific resources (ResearchGate, PeerJ, and eLife) that can help researchers more successfully reproduce findings and techniques, while also enabling more efficient knowledge transfer. We will also discuss the publishers’ role in embracing these important research technologies so that journals not only remain places that publish new scholarly discoveries but also become true partners offering innovative tools to STEM researchers.
