Strengths and flaws in scientific research


American Scientist recently published a fascinating essay about how scientific research is conducted and gets reported, and about how conflicts between the publishing process and the need for replicability studies can affect what we understand about scientific discoveries.  The essay raises some interesting questions about how we evaluate the credibility of scientific information, and also highlights the need to always look for multiple sources of information.

Happy Friday reading…
