More importantly, Dr. R. Barker Bausell has designed it to provide guidance to practicing and aspiring scientists regarding how (a) to change the way in which science has come to be both conducted and reported in order to avoid producing false positive, irreproducible results in their own work and (b) to change those institutional practices (primarily but not exclusively involving the traditional journal publishing process and the academic reward system) that have unwittingly contributed to the present crisis. There is a need for change in the scientific culture itself. A culture which prioritizes conducting research correctly in order to get things right rather than simply getting it published.
R. Barker Bausell is Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where he served as a research methodologist and biostatistician on the faculties of both the schools of medicine and nursing for over 30 years. He has authored 14 scientifically related books, and founded and served for 33 years as the Editor-in-Chief of the refereed medical evaluation journal Evaluation & the Health Professions.
