This is the third instalment of ‘The case for Open Research’ series of
blogs exploring the problems with Scholarly Communication caused by having
a single value point in research – publication in a high impact journal.
The first post explored the mis-measurement of researchers and the second
looked at issues with authorship.

*This blog will explore the accuracy of the research record, including the
ability (or otherwise) to reproduce research that has been published, what
happens if research is retracted, and a concerning trend towards altering
hypotheses in light of the data that is produced.*
