During the 2016 LML summer school, Max and I ended up discussing the irreproducibility crisis in science, and that led to a draft manuscript, published today on the arXiv:1706.07773, see also this earlier blog post. Over the last few years several (apparently reproducible!) studies have come out that confirm the crisis. For instance, a survey of scientists, conducted by Nature, found that 70% of respondents had at some point tried but failed to reproduce a published result.
