Science’s reproducibility crisis is one of the biggest problems facing research today. According to recent estimates, 70-90% of published research cannot be reproduced, forcing scientists to spend countless hours and nearly $28 billion annually - in the U.S. alone - on trial and error. While the entire scientific community has a responsibility to address this crisis, librarians are the best positioned to lead the movement toward more reproducible research. By raising awareness of the reproducibility crisis, teaching patrons the importance of research reproducibility, and developing innovative initiatives to help promote reproducibility, librarians are help to advance research at institutions around the world.

With that in mind, JoVE announced its inaugural Librarian Travel Award this year to celebrate librarians who are leading innovative initiatives focused on raising reproducibility awareness. In this “by librarians, for librarians” presentation, we’ll meet three of our award recipients and study their innovative reproducibility initiatives. Attendees will learn how they developed their initiatives, what results they’ve seen from faculty and patrons since launching them, and what librarians can do at their own institutions to take on leadership roles and raise research reproducibility awareness.
