Meta-research is the scientific study of research and of research practices. It builds on the long-standing experience of evidence-based synthesis and meta-analysis methods, but over the last decade it has extended its methods and goals to cover both specific and wide assessments of the way research is designed, performed, reported, evaluated, disseminated, and rewarded. Multiple initiatives have been launched that cover diverse aspects of this agenda across a wide spectrum of scientific fields.
