Laura and John Arnold Foundation's core objective is to address our nation’s most pressing and persistent challenges using evidence-based, multi-disciplinary approaches.
For over three years now, we at the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) have been thinking about the problem of reproducibility in science. One of our first efforts was to launch the Center for Open Science (COS). This afternoon, a flagship COS project, the Reproducibility Project in Psychology, published its findings in Science.
The project took 100 psychology experiments published in top journals in 2008, and then coordinated the replication of those experiments by over 250 scientists from around the world. The effort’s unprecedented size and ambition drew admiring coverage from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Economist, Vox, FiveThirtyEight, Wired, and many other media outlets.
