This report focuses on the increasing importance of failure in supporting modern research.

‘Making Science Better: Reproducibility, Falsifiability and the Scientific Method’ looks at the current state of reproducibility in 2019, as well as the importance of falsifiability in the research process. The report addresses three areas including appropriate documentation and sharing of research data, clear analysis and processes, and the sharing of code.

The analysis comes from the Digital Science portfolio company, Ripeta, which 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.
