Science is often referred to as a self-correcting system and scholarly communications are meant to play an important role in that process. By describing the work that has been undertaken, others can verify the work by replicating it, testing its validity, and applying it in their own work, thereby building upon it. Recently, questions have arisen about the scholarly record, with revelations about false data, erroneous processes, and irreproducible research. This webinar will explore ways in which scholars, publishers and libraries are working to ensure the trustworthiness of the scholarly record.
This session was presented by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) in January 2016. Access to this archive is sponsored by the Georgia Library Association.
