A large part of the scientific results published in peer-reviewed journals is not reproducible. This affects nearly all scientific disciplines, in particular medical research and global health.
Non-reproducible results can have serious consequences for the public, either in terms of non-optimal treatment of diseases or with respect to financial aspects for the health system. The Certicate Reproducible Research aims to qualify researchers in the health sciences to perform their research according to highest quality standards. The certificate covers important aspects of reproducible research such as:
