At the end of my previous blog “Because, change is hard“, I said, and I quote: “So, send me your huddled, tired essays repeating the same messages about improving our approach to science that we’ve been making for years and I’ll post, repost, and blog about them every time.”
Well, someone asked me to repost their’s. So here is it is: http://www.nature.com/news/no-researcher-is-too-junior-to-fix-science-1.21928. It is a nice piece by John Tregoning.
Speaking of which, there were two related blogs posted right after the change is hard piece that are both worth reading. The first by Dorothy Bishop is brilliant and counters my pessimism so effectively I’m almost tempted to call her Simine Vazire: http://deevybee.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/reproducible-practices-are-future-for.html
And if you missed it James Heathers has a spot on post about the New Bad People: https://medium.com/@jamesheathers/meet-the-new-bad-people-4922137949a1
