Promoting an open research culture

Promoting an open research culture | Comunicação Científica | Scoop.it
Transparency, openness, and reproducibility are readily recognized as vital features of science ( 1 , 2 ). When asked, most scientists embrace these features as disciplinary norms and values ( 3 ). Therefore, one might expect that these valued features would be routine in daily practice. Yet, a growing body of evidence suggests that this is not the case ( 4 – 6 ).

Thinking in a second language hinders imagination, study finds

Thinking in a second language hinders imagination, study finds | Comunicação Científica | Scoop.it
As anyone who’s ever learned a foreign language will know, thinking in anything other than your mother tongue requires a lot of effort. But according to a new study, doing so actually drains the brain of some of its ability to conjure up mental imagery. The research, carried out by psychologists at the University of Chicago, concluded that “our mental images change when using a foreign tongue.”

Dúvidas estatísticas | Revista Pesquisa Fapesp | Comunicação Científica | Scoop.it
Em agosto de 2016, um conjunto de cerca de 50 mil artigos científicos do campo da psicologia passou pelo escrutínio de um software capaz de detectar inconsistências estatísticas, desenvolvido por pesquisadores da Universidade de Tilburg, na Holanda. Batizado de statcheck, o programa refaz cálculos e observa se os resultados são robustos  e correspondem ao que está publicado no manuscrito. Em metade dos papers foi detectado algum tipo de problema, desde erros de digitação  e simples arredondamentos até resultados equivocados com potencial para comprometer conclusões de estudos. Os achados dessa gigantesca verificação foram comunicados de forma automática por e-mail aos autores…

From funding agencies to scientific agency

From funding agencies to scientific agency | Comunicação Científica | Scoop.it
Publicly funded research involves the distribution of a considerable amount of money. Funding agencies such as the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the European Research Council (ERC) give billions of dollars or euros of taxpayers' money to individual researchers, research teams, universities, and research institutes each year. Taxpayers accordingly expect that governments and funding agencies will spend their money prudently and efficiently.

Investing money to the greatest effect is not a challenge unique to research funding agencies and there are many strategies and schemes to choose from. Nevertheless, most funders rely on a tried and tested method in line with the tradition of the scientific community: the peer review of individual proposals to identify the most promising projects for funding. This method has been considered the gold standard for assessing the scientific value of research projects essentially since the end of the Second World War.

> Investing money to the greatest effect is not a challenge unique to research funding agencies and there are many strategies and schemes to choose from

However, there is mounting critique of the use of peer review to direct research funding. High on the list of complaints is the cost, both in terms of time and money. In 2012, for example, NSF convened more than 17,000 scientists to review 53,556 proposals [1]. Reviewers generally spend a considerable time and effort to assess and rate proposals of which only a minority can eventually get funded. Of course, such a high rejection rate is also frustrating for the applicants. Scientists spend an increasing amount of time writing and submitting grant proposals. Overall, the scientific community invests an extraordinary amount of time, energy, and effort into the writing and reviewing of research proposals, most of which end up not …
