Are Perverse Incentives Responsible for the Replication Crisis?
This will be an online talk via Zoom and pre-registration is required. Register here: https://pitt.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_jtArjv8yS4eTHjXBHTq53w
ABSTRACT: It is commonly claimed that unacceptable or questionable scientific practices, including fraud, salami publishing, and p-hacking, are due to the perverse incentives that shape scientific research. In this talk I will examine critically the empirical evidence and the models in support of this claim.
