eLife Feature Articles allow authors to discuss research culture, science policy and funding, careers in science and a variety of other topics related to science and research. Feature Articles can also report original findings in
Science Forum: Improving preclinical studies through replications
Natascha Ingrid Drude et al.
Increasing validity should be a priority when deciding which preclinical experiments to replicate and when performing replications.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion: Racial inequity in grant funding from the US National Institutes of Health
Michael A Taffe, Nicholas W Gilpin
Meta-Research: A retrospective analysis of the peer review of more than 75,000 Marie Curie proposals between 2007 and 2018
David G Pina et al.
A study of more than 75,000 grant proposals to the European Union indicates that the outcomes of the peer review process remain stable in response to changes in the way that peer review is organized.
Research Culture: A survey of early-career researchers in Australia
Katherine Christian et al.
Job insecurity is putting stress on early-career researchers in Australia, compromising their career development and potentially reducing the quality of research.
Meta-Research: Journal policies and editors’ opinions on peer review
Daniel G Hamilton et al.
A survey of journals and editors in five areas of research - ecology, economics, medicine, physics and psychology - reveals a range of differences in their approach to peer review.
Chromosomes and Gene Expression
Science Forum: A survey of research quality in core facilities
Isabelle C Kos-Braun et al.
Responses to a survey reveal how core facilities could improve and encourage good research practices.

Meta-Research: COVID-19 research risks ignoring important host genes due to pre-established research patterns
Thomas Stoeger, Luís A Nunes Amaral
An analysis of 10,395 research publications about COVID-19 that mention at least one human gene reveals that many genes implicated in SARS-CoV-2 infection by genome-wide studies remain unstudied.
Biochemistry and Chemical Biology
Meta-Research: Task specialization across research careers
Nicolas Robinson-Garcia et al.
An analysis of author contribution statements in a large number of published papers reveals biases in the career trajectories of scientists.
Meta-Research: Evaluating the impact of open access policies on research institutions
Chun-Kai (Karl) Huang et al.
A longitudinal study of open access levels at 1,207 research institutions worldwide reveals high performing institutions in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Meta-Research: Questionable research practices may have little effect on replicability
Rolf Ulrich, Jeff Miller
Although questionable research practices inflate false positive rates, they have little effect on replicability because they also increase power.
