about this item

The first comprehesive book to present and question significant aspects of the principles, problems, and practices used to achieve reproducible empirical results in contemportary research across numerous disciplines, including psychology, biology, environmental studies, computational mechanics, and the social sciences.This book delves into methods and techniques (and their epistemic and ontological underpinnings) that have been developed to safeguard reproducible research and curtail its shortcomings. In addition, several chapters, all of which are in line with contemporary science studies, investigate the political, historical, and social practices that underly reproducible research.  At the crossroads of methodology, philosophy, and science studies, the book presents comprehensive coverage for reflecting and acting upon the norm of reproducibility in various pertinent fields of research.  This interdisciplinary book does not stop at the boundaries of indvidual disciplines, but rather transcends them in essential ways.  Key problems and innovative perspectives in the philosophy and sociology of science are combined to raise questions for scientific policy making and good scientic practice.
