The drift of scientific practices under the pressure of 'publish or perish' has led to the realization of the importance of one of the major criteria for the scientificity of work.
This is the criterion of scientific reproducibility according to Karl Popper, which remains a major reference in epistemology and which has had a profound impact on the production of knowledge in many fields.
The title of an article in the newspaper "Le Monde", dated October 2, 2017 was: "Scientific rigor to the test of reproducibility" ;
another article provocatively titled in de PloS Medicine: "Most scientific results are false", because they cannot be reproduced.
This statement was made by John Ioannidis of Stanford University, one of the world's leading epidemiologists.
In this seminar we will present the main definitions, discuss the extent to which informatics work is involved, and then give some examples of applications to LIMOS as well as indications of good practice.
