Title: The Reproducibility Initiative: A Potential Solution to the Irreproducibility Problem
Author(s): Elizabeth Iorns*+
Companies: Science Exchange
Keywords: Reproducibility ; Replication studies ; Validation ; Quality Control

The Reproducibility Initiative was launched last year in response to revelations from the pharmaceutical industry that more than 70% of published research findings cannot be reproduced, significantly impacting their ability to develop effective new therapies to treat disease. The Reproducibility Initiative provides a solution to the reproducibility problem by identifying and rewarding high quality reproducible research through independent validation of key experimental results.
