The reproducibility of scientific findings is crucial for the credibility of empirical research. The objective of the Center for Reproducible Science is to train the next generation of researchers in good research practices, to develop novel methodology related to reproducibility and replicability, and to improve the quality of scientific investigation using meta-science.

The CRS brings together methodologists from across University of Zurich (UZH), working in fields which typically do not communicate with each other intensively. This methodological think tank allows to overcome traditional barriers between fields, and aims to determine sound state-of-the-art solutions to scientific challenges.

As a result, UZH researchers who are invested in replication or reproducibility efforts can get together with the methodologists of the CRS either through training activities, direct collaboration, or simply via publications.

CRS has appeared in the media repeatedly and publishes a newsletter as well as a the series Reproduciblity Notes in the Significance magazine.
