This grant provides partial support to the National Academy of Sciences for a consensus report on how to use insights from the behavioral, social, and statistical sciences to improve the reliability and reproducibility of research. The project will include five committee meetings featuring various experts across the sciences, five commissioned papers on reproducibility, an expert panel on behavioral economics and the professional incentives facing producers and consumers of research, and a final consensus report. While the majority of the funding will be provided by NSF, this grant will provide supplementary support both for including economic perspectives in the study and for disseminating the final report.
