“Nature” World View – “Metascience Could Rescue the Replication Crisis”

“We need a clearer sense of the processes that influence the reliability of new findings”, said psychologist Jonathan Schooler (UC Santa Barbara) in a recent commentary he wrote for "Nature" titled “Metascience Could Rescue the Replication Crisis”. The author, who is also a Science Advisor with the Fetzer Franklin Fund (FFF), describes the decline effect, the reproducibility crisis in science, and the large scale, multi-center effort by the FFF. This multi-year research effort seeks to identify the essential factors leading to the observed decline in the reproducibility of scientific findings.
