Call for Papers

Following the success of the first workshop, the second Perspectives on Scientific Error workshop will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers interested in issues of scientific error. Participants will share their views on how scientific errors can be detected and corrected, how they influence scientific communities, and the perception of science as
a whole.

The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • replicability of research findings
  • statistical and social reforms to address error (e.g., Bayesian vs frequentist statistics, publication practices, incentive structures)
  • evidence aggregation, meta-analysis, and evidence hierarchies
  • error propagation and error correction
  • values in science, and their impact on scientific error
  • trust in science, science denial, etc.
