  1. Point of View: Correcting the bias against interdisciplinary research

    Ehud Shapiro
    When making decisions about funding and jobs the scientific community should recognise that most of the tools used to evaluate scientific excellence are biased in favour of established disciplines and against interdisciplinary research.
  2. Early-career researcher travel grants 2018: Eight authors selected in the final round of funding

    The grantees will receive up to $1,000 to help them present their work at scientific meetings.
  3. Point of View: Mitigating the impact of conference and travel cancellations on researchers’ futures

    Tracey Weissgerber et al.
    As the scientific community adapts to new working conditions in response to the growing pandemic, early-career researchers recommend actions to help lessen the unintended consequences of canceled conferences.
  4. Point of View: Hidden value

    Brooke Morriswood, Oliver Hoeller
    The fact that it is difficult to evaluate and compare the outputs of individual researchers might actually be good for science.

    Research: NIH peer review percentile scores are poorly predictive of grant productivity

    Ferric C Fang et al.
    Peer review scores were poorly predictive of research project success in this large dataset, suggesting that reviewers cannot reliably predict which meritorious applications are most likely to be productive.
  5. Point of View: Avoiding a lost generation of scientists

    Justin Q Taylor et al.
    By sharing their experiences, early-career scientists can help to make the case for increased government funding for researchers.

    Meta-Research: Centralized scientific communities are less likely to generate replicable results

    Valentin Danchev et al.
    Analysis of data on drug-gene interactions suggests that decentralized collaboration will increase the robustness of scientific findings in biomedical research.
    1. Cancer Biology

    Reproducibility in Cancer Biology: Rethinking research into metastasis

    Peter Friedl
    The partial success of an attempt to repeat findings in cancer biology highlights the need to improve study designs for preclinical research into metastasis and the targeting of cancer cells.
