    Research Ethics: Uncertainty Reproducibility and Truth in Science

    Research Ethics: Uncertainty Reproducibility and Truth in Science

    The promise of science is great, but the application of new technologies often raises profound ethical questions.

Theoretical and empirical investigations have caused many to believe that science now faces a reproducibility crisis: Much that is published by one team of scientists cannot be reproduced by another. Research ethicist Mike Kalichman, addresses the magnitude of this crisis, factors contributing to research findings that are not reproducible, and identifying strategies that will promote the rigor and reproducibility of science.
