Welcome to Scimpact

Experiment, Analyze, Publish, Connect and Make an Impact!

At Scimpact, we want to evolve from the outdated model of publishing "stories". Science is NOT story-telling. Story-telling and oral history by definition is prone to embellishment and misinterpretation. And it takes years to build these "stories" with no recognition for confirmatory experiments (reproduced data) or negative data.

Let's evolve to what science truly is: peer-reviewed hypothesis generation--->peer-reviewed experiment design---->recognition at different stages and different contributions---->after each experiment, whether for conducting, reviewing or designing the experiment.

Our first project is miniReproducibility Project (@scimpact_org #mRP), a fun gamified portal to submit, compare and recognize the years of confirmatory experiments that all good hypotheses are based on.
