PURPOSE

The Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS) is a research-to-action center whose purpose is to advance excellence in scientific research. Our center aims to undertake rigorous evaluation of research practices and find ways to optimize the reproducibility and efficiency of scientific investigations. We aim to apply research methods to study how research is done, how it can be done better, and how to effectively promote and incentivize the use of best scientific practices.
