        NOVA: The Reproducibility Crisis

        Learn about the reproducibility crisis, in this media gallery from NOVA. Scientists generate new knowledge by building on published research. However, replication studies are rarely performed. Recent attempts to reproduce published research have failed, calling the validity of the original studies into question. Learn about the causes of the reproducibility crisis and the steps the scientific community has taken to address it. This resource is part of the NOVA: Web-Original Collection.

        Disclosure Statement: This video was funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF), which also supports the cost of conducting reproducibility experiments. LJAF provided funding to the organizations featured in this video to carry out the studies covered here. NOVA has been assured that LJAF had no editorial involvement in the video.
