Perspectives on Scientific Error
Tilburg 5037 AB
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Recent studies reveal a high prevalence of error in published research. Theoretical arguments suggest that many published findings are false, and reports across fields show that many experiments do not replicate.
These errors raise important issues. From a practitioner’s perspective, errors mislead and slow down research projects. From a philosophical perspective, scientific error raises questions about the right forms of scientific inference, scientific progress and the reliability of science as a source of knowledge. From the perspective of the public, scientific error undermines the epistemic authority of science and the degree to which policy-makers trust scientific experts.
This workshop brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers interested in issues of scientific error. Participants share their views on how scientific errors can be detected and corrected, how they influence scientific communities and the perception of science as a whole.
Submissions on any of these topics are welcome, either as contributed talks or as posters. More information can be found on the workshop website.
The workshop is sponsored by ERC Starting Investigator Grant No. 640638, “Making Scientific Inferences More Objective”: https://msio.wordpress.com.
