    Assessing reliability in neuroimaging research through intra-class effect decomposition (ICED)

    Andreas M Brandmaier et al.
    In human neuroimaging, the intra-class effect decomposition (ICED) framework indexes overall reliability, and enables researchers to identify and quantify multi-source contributions to measurement error with the goal of developing more reliable measures.
  1. Research: The readability of scientific texts is decreasing over time

    Pontus Plavén-Sigray et al.
    Scientific abstracts have become less readable over the past 130 years, in part because recent texts include more general scientific jargon than older texts.

    Spatial cue reliability drives frequency tuning in the barn Owl's midbrain

    Fanny Cazettes et al.
    Space-specific neurons in the owl's auditory midbrain are selective for the frequencies that yield the most reliable sound localization cues.

    Data reusability: a pilot with goodtables

    We worked with Open Knowledge International to investigate the reusability of data shared with eLife.
    1. Neuroscience

    The influence of evidence volatility on choice, reaction time and confidence in a perceptual decision

    Ariel Zylberberg et al.
    A single framework of bounded evidence accumulation resolves the seemingly paradoxical effects of noise on accuracy, reaction time and confidence.
    1. Cell Biology

    An adaptation of astronomical image processing enables characterization and functional 3D mapping of individual sites of excitation-contraction coupling in rat cardiac muscle

    Qinghai Tian et al.
    The fusion of astronomy and cellular cardiology reveals the 3D arrangement and the firing reliability of active excitation-contraction coupling sites in beating cardiac myocytes.
  3. Point of view: Motivating participation in open science by examining researcher incentives

    Sarah E Ali-Khan et al.
    A survey of researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital provides insights into the challenges and opportunities involved in adopting an open science policy across an entire patient-oriented academic institution.
  4. Scientific Publishing: Transparent reporting of research results in eLife

    M Dawn Teare
    Manuscripts should include all the experimental and statistical details that are needed to replicate the experiments and analyses reported in them.

  5. Point of View: Overflow in science and its implications for trust

    Sabina Siebert et al.
    Interviews with senior biomedical researchers reveal a perceived decline in trust in the scientific enterprise, in large part because the quantity of new data exceeds the field's ability to process it appropriately.
    1. Epidemiology and Global Health

    Science Forum: Unit of analysis issues in laboratory-based research

    Nick R Parsons et al.
    A simulation study is used to demonstrate how mistakes in identifying the experimental unit and the unit of analysis can lead to incorrect analyses and inappropriate inferences when reporting research studies.
