The reproducibility and replicability crises have long been recognized in the scientific community. Reproducibility is obtaining consistent results using the same input data; computational steps, methods, and code; and conditions of analysis. Replicability is obtaining consistent results across studies aimed at answering the same scientific question, each of which has obtained its own data.

In this seminar we are going to discuss the main factors that affect the lack of reproducibility and replicability and also review some of the current and proposed efforts to improve reproducibility and replicability.
