NSF to Consider Proposals on Reproducibility and Replicability in Science

On October 25, the National Science Foundation (NSF) released a Dear Colleague Letter reaffirming the agency’s commitment to the findings of a 2019 report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) titled Reproducibility and Replicability in Science. This report was aimed at providing clear research practices and guidelines to recreate scientific results through multiple research methods and to identify ways to improve public confidence in scientific findings (see previous COSSA coverage). In addition, the NSF letter notes that the agency may be interested in funding proposals for research addressing reproducibility and replicability in science. NSF is especially interested in proposals on advancing the science of reproducibility and replicability, research infrastructure for reproducibility and replicability, and educational efforts to build a scientific culture that supports reproducibility and replicability. More information is available in the NSF letter.
