There is growing alarm about results that cannot be reproduced. Explanations include increased levels of scrutiny, complexity of experiments and statistics, and pressures on researchers. Journals, scientists, institutions and funders all have a part in tackling reproducibility. Nature has taken substantive steps to improve the transparency and robustness in what they publish, and to promote awareness within the scientific community.

Success stories and cautionary tales from researchers related to their experiences with managing and sharing scientific research data as collected by DataONE.
It’s clear by now that research data are not confined to your own project -indeed, the movement towards FAIR and OPEN data is a very exciting one. One of the many initiatives that have come to the surface is the reprohack. In a nutshell, a ReproHack is aimed at assessing the reproducibility of scientific research that publicly shared code and data.
