Replicability

Has science taken a wrong turn? If so, what corrections are needed? Chronicles of scientific misbehavior. The role of heretic-pioneers and forbidden questions in the sciences. Is peer review working? The perverse "consensus of leading scientists." Good public relations versus good science.

I'm sure there is already a thread covering this but I can't find it. Admins feel free to move the post there and delete this thread if there is.

Most scientists 'can't replicate studies by their peers'

The reproducibility difficulties are not about fraud, according to Dame Ottoline Leyser, director of the Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.
There's part of the problem right there. Sainsbury is the name of one of the largest supermarket chains in the UK and various family members sit on govt quangos as well as funding the Conservative party.
If I have the least bit of knowledge
I will follow the great Way alone
and fear nothing but being sidetracked.
The great Way is simple
but people delight in complexity.
