The decline effect

I just got pointed to a very interesting article in The New Yorker. It’s not entirely on reproducible research itself, but on the scientific method, which I believe is related enough to mention it here. The article is about how difficult it is to do ‘good’ science, and not to be tricked into believing what we want to believe.
