We are proud to welcome a US-based startup to the Digital Science family of companies: automated reproducibility assessment tool, ripeta.

Daniel Hook, CEO of Digital Science, said:

“Reproducibility of research is one of the critical topics of modern times – if research is to remain trusted by the populations who fund it, then researchers must ensure that their research can be reproduced by others.”

The company is playing a key role in making scientific research reproducible and more transparent. Ripeta is developing a “credit report” for scientific publications to assess and help improve the transparency needed to effectively communicate research.

Leslie McIntosh, CEO of ripeta, said:

“While technological innovations have accelerated scientific discoveries, they have complicated scientific reporting. Science is hard and reproducibility is important, so we need to make better science easier. We are developing the tools to make research methods transparent, enabling the verifiability, falsifiability and reproducibility of research. We are thrilled to receive this investment with the great team at Digital Science who provide a fantastic partnership. This will propel our work at ripeta helping make scientific reporting more transparent.”
