Reproducibility is vital to scientific research as it allows multiple researchers to repeat a study and determine whether they find the same result. This idea of being able to reproduce studies in order to see if the results hold true is one of the cornerstones of science. When multiple researchers are able to find the same results, using the same process, it allows researchers to be sure that the results are true. If other researchers attempt to reproduce a study’s results and do not come up with the same results, it casts doubt on the original findings and requires that further research be done to determine exactly what is happening.
