Love Data Week | “The incentives made me do it!”: Really?
The behavioral and biomedical sciences have been confronting a replication crisis for over a decade: An unexpectedly large number of findings, including influential ones, fail to replicate in these disciplines. A common explanation of the low replicability of findings in these sciences appeals to scientists’ incentives: Scientists are incentivized to engage in practices that undermine the reliability of their results. This talk challenges this explanation and proposes an alternative.
This talk will be in-person in Hillman Library, with a hybrid option.
