What are the biggest problems in science?
- Academia has a huge money problem.
- Too many studies are poorly designed.
- Replicating results is crucial — and rare.
- Peer review is broken.
- Too much science is locked behind paywalls.
- Science is poorly communicated.
How many scientific studies are wrong?
Most published scientific research papers are wrong, according to a new analysis. Assuming that the new paper is itself correct, problems with experimental and statistical methods mean that there is less than a 50% chance that the results of any randomly chosen scientific paper are … true.
Can science make mistakes?
Errors arising from human fallibility also occur in science. Scientists do not have limitless working time or access to unlimited resources. Even the most responsible scientist can make an honest mistake.
