NPR Science Correspondent Richard Harris talks about his just-published book, Rigor Mortis, which explores the various ways that biomedical research goes awry ??? from bad ingredients and ill-considered methods to analytical no-nos like HARKing and p-hacking. Harris looks at the underlying reasons for these shortcomings and talks about efforts in the biomedical community to improve rigor and reproducibility.
