What's the talk about?

Research papers are the medium used to reveal new scientific discoveries. But there is a growing body of evidence that many published research papers are false. How can science work if most scientists are getting things wrong ?

The answer to this question will take us through the history of how science is made. We'll look at how mistakes and outright falsehoods can get published. Then we'll explore how scientists are working to change the system, to fix these problems and make more published research true.
