Feedback from reproducible science workshops
Only a minority of scientists think there is no 'reproducibility crisis' (Nature 533, 452–454), yet many are not engaging in reproducible practices. Results from a recent survey among psychology researchers suggest that discussion and education about the utility and feasibility of practices like data sharing are needed if we want the community to adopt those standards.
