Earlier this year METRICS brought together scientific thought leaders to Washington, D.C. to discuss how scientists are rewarded for their work. Here we report on some key themes from the workshop.
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.

Allison, Richard Shiffrin and Victoria Stodden, and generously supported by the Laura and John Arnold foundation and others, the colloquium brought together experts from all over the academic and geographic world, to discuss “Reproducibility of Research: Issues and Proposed Remedies”.
