The Problem of Reproducibility

Ince, Darrel (2012). The Problem of Reproducibility. Technical Report 2012/02; Department of Computing, The Open University.



In this article, I look at the issue of reproducibility in science, concentrating on omics- and medicine-based research work. In a sense I am (to quote a British saying) ‘teaching my grandmother to suck eggs’ since many of you, as statisticians, will have this as your central tenet. However, I hope I might describe some ideas and materials that are new to you—at least partially. Ideas which you might like to share with non-statisticians.
