Abstract

A number of researchers have noticed the disturbing fact that many published scientific findings, even from "gold standard" experiments, are later found to be non-replicable. The reasons for this lie partly in psychology (of scientists) and partly in the sociology and incentive structure of science, but statistical considerations also helps to explain this phenomenon. We will discuss this problem from a number of angles and propose possible remedies.
