Where can I learn more about the issues?
After more than half a decade of discussion, the literature on reproducibility is substantial. Thankfully, brave authors have provided summaries and reviews:
- Spellman, Gilbert, & Corker (2017) provide practical, actionable advice for Open Science: What, Why, and How
- Nelson, J. Simmons, & Simonsohn (2017) have written an excellent overview of Psychology's Renaissance, with a focus on questionable research practices and suggested mitigation strategies.
- The Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) provides a five-week online course on Transparent and Open Social Science Research that covers every step of the research process. Similarly, the Open Science MOOC is developing course material for learning about Open Science, and has collected many interesting links for different topics that often go beyond scholarly articles.
- The Open Science Training Handbook is a fantastic and comprehensive resource that covers many topics around open science. It's built for people who would like to create open science training, and very in-depth.
- Brent Roberts and Dan Simmons have compiled an extensive Reproducibility and Replicability Reading List which lists further literature by topic.
