Tackling Tough Topics Together:

Rigor and Reproducibility in Research

Cohosted by: SLA Biomedical & Life Sciences Division and Clarivate Analytics


Do you teach your Basic Science faculty, fellows, and students the best practices in documenting and reporting research?

$86 billion dollars was spent on basic science research in 2015, according to a National Science Foundation survey.  However several high-profile articles have recently shown the lack of rigor and reproducibility within basic research.  This raises the question, “

Are we doing enough to ensure the ROI in Basic Science research?

Join Clarivate Analytics and the Special Libraries Association, Biomedical and Life Sciences Division to look at important questions, and to see what information professionals can do to help improve rigor in reporting.  The Alzheimer’s Preclinical Efficacy Database, supported by the National Institute on Aging and the NIH Library, will be used to demonstrate issues and methodologies in reporting.
