The 6th World Conference on Research Integrity will take place in Hong Kong, June 2-5, 2019. Co-organized by Melbourne, Australia, it will explore the application of these new research findings to develop new and better solutions to address New Challenges for Research Integrity.
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.

Currently, there is a growing interest in ensuring the transparency and reproducibility of the published scientific literature. According to a previous evaluation of 441 biomedical journals articles published in 2000–2014, the biomedical literature largely lacked transparency in important dimensions. Here, we surveyed a random sample of 149 biomedical articles published between 2015 and 2017 and determined the proportion reporting sources of public and/or private funding and conflicts of interests, sharing protocols and raw data, and undergoing rigorous independent replication and reproducibility checks.

Meta-Research is coming of age. This is the energizing insight that I brought home from Washington, DC, where I had joined the recent Sackler Colloquium held at the National Academy of Sciences. Organized by David B. Allison, Richard Shiffrin and Victoria Stodden, and generously supported by the Laura and John Arnold foundation and others, the colloquium brought together experts from all over the academic and geographic world, to discuss “Reproducibility of Research: Issues and Proposed Remedies”.
