There has been a lot of heated discussion in recent years about a "reproducibility crisis" in science. How did it come about? Is there really a crisis? If there is, what can we do to resolve it?

In this talk I will give a philosophical overview of some key puzzles in evaluating the trustworthiness of published studies, and explore the ethical obligations of researchers - individually and collectively - in producing trustworthy science of their own.
