The Congress will be held September 10-12, 2017, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Our aim is to encourage research into the quality and credibility of peer review and scientific publication, to establish the evidence base on which scientists can improve the conduct, reporting, and dissemination of scientific research.
A call for the adoption of measures to improve key elements of the scientific process: methods, reporting and dissemination, reproducibility, evaluation and incentives.

In this Perspective, we review an array of explicit and implicit definitions of reproducibility and related terminology, and discuss how to avoid potential misunderstandings when these terms are used as a surrogate for “truth.”
