An International Team of Experts Just Released A “Manifesto” on How to Fix Science

  • Experts have published a “manifesto” on how to improve science research in four areas: methods, reporting and dissemination, reproducibility, and evaluation and incentives.
  • With research showing that many published scientific papers fail to move science forward, this manifesto provides a much-needed blueprint for progress in science research.

The authors note in the manifesto that biomedical research is particularly flawed. They cite a “meta-research” analysis that determined that 85 percent of research efforts in that field are wasted.
