House of Commons Science and Technology Committee – Call for Evidence: Reproducibility and research integrity

Issues surrounding reproducibility and research integrity have been identified from as early as 2005. In 2017, this select committee held an inquiry into research integrity (you can read the Society submission here) which resulted in the government actioning UKRI to establish a national research integrity committee. The committee then launched a new inquiry into reproducibility and research integrity, with a shift of focus to reproducibility.

In our submission, we recommended that the Committee advises all publishers develop guidance on reproducibility and research integrity, that there should be a focus on educational interventions to improve consistency and standards in the use of research animals and further focus and investigation into the area of reproducibility by the government and relevant bodies must be a priority.
