Building Trust in Science

The scientific community produces a staggering body of work each year. Yet researchers simply do not have the time to carefully evaluate each article they come across, creating space for substandard research to slip into our publications. A staggering 50-85% of published research is unreproducible. Ripeta tackles this problem by providing a quick and accurate way to assess the trustworthiness of research.

Ripeta aims to make better science easier by identifying and highlighting the important parts of research that should be transparently presented in a manuscript and other materials. Effectively a ‘credit report’ for scientific publications, the tool rapidly screens and assesses manuscripts for the proper reporting of scientific method components. Ripeta focuses on assessing the quality of the reporting and robustness of the scientific method rather than the quality of the science.
