Modern science suffers from an irreproducibility crisis in a wide range of disciplines—from medicine to social psychology. Far too often scientists cannot reproduce claims made in research. John Ioannidis says bias is rife in research and he estimates that a large portion of research findings that physicians rely on – as much as 90 percent – may be flawed and simply false positives.
