The Crisis in Science (Continued)

Yet another report on the reproducibility crisis in science. A very basic tenet of the scientific method is that scientists report their experimental results (often in scientific journals) so that others can reproduce them to insure the results were valid. Report after report (red link) shows that bogus results are a huge, and growing, issue.

I salute the journal Nature for now requiring the data needed to reproduce the results be part of the publication.
