In the early 21st century the biomedical sciences encountered a crisis where its rigor and reproducibility was questioned at a time of increasing retractions and concerns about the overall quality of the research output. Concurrent with these trends, there is some evidence that biomedical innovation has slowed in recent decades relative to what is known. In recent years a number of initiatives have emerged to shore up the reliability of the research output that are reforming the biomedical research enterprise.
