SiE03: The credibility in neuroscience (09:30-10:30)

FENS Forum 2020, 11-15 July, Glasgow - Official Special Interest Event on Neuroscience
In this special event, we will hear about credibility initiatives that have the potential to increase the reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of neuroscience research, which will not only benefit scientific progress in the long-run, but also address a major cause for the poor mental health of research.

Start

July 12, 2020 - 9:30 am

End

July 12, 2020 - 10:30 am

Organised by BNA/FENS-CHET.

Today I wouldn’t get an academic job. It’s as simple as that. I don’t think I would be regarded as productive enough.” Peter Higgs, Nobel prize winner

The preference for dramatic, novel and positive findings over incremental, reproduced or negative findings within a ‘publish or perish’ culture is jeopardising the reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of neuroscience research. While this issue has been recognised for some time, and is currently being addressed by many research councils, institutes and journals who are adopting credible initiatives, there is still a perceived – or in many cases actual – pressure on neuroscientists to publish ‘high-impact’ articles (and in high numbers).

In this special event, we will hear about credibility initiatives that have the potential to increase the reproducibility, replicability, and reliability neuroscience research, which will not only benefit scientific progress in the long-run, but also address a major cause for the poor mental health of research.
