• Cochrane-REWARD prize for reducing waste in research

    Waste occurs during 5 stages of research production: question selection, study design, research conduct, publication, and reporting. Much of this waste appears to be avoidable or remediable, but there are few proposed solutions. To stimulate and promote research in this area,, Cochrane is now calling for nominations for the 2018 prize. Nominations should be submitted by 15 May 2018.

  • A New Meta-research Community


    A Reddit dedicated to meta-research where anyone can post relevant content they find online (e.g. articles, news, initiatives, opportunities), initiate discussions on anything they see fit (e.g. opinions, ideas, peer review) and help create a corpus on anything related to meta-research. The hope is for it to become an inclusive community for all by all, through which we can all facilitate each other towards studying and improving the state of scientific research quality. If you think this would be useful to you or anyone you know of, feel free to subscribe, contribute and pass it on!
