Patching Science – amending the literature through version control

https://doi.org/10.1101/2022.04.13.487348

“Science is held to lofty ideals. Chief among them is its supposed capacity for self-correction. However, we, and
many other academics, argue that the current model of scientific publication hinders this capacity (Barbour
et al. 2017; Teixeira da Silva and Al-Khatib 2021; Allison et al. 2016). People make mistakes and the peer
review system can’t catch them all (Molckovsky, Vickers, and Tang 2011; Kendall et al. 2019). Yet the
number of steps involved in correcting or supplementing previously published research acts to discourage what
should be a straightforward process that is in the hands of the original authors (Barbour et al. 2017; Teixeira
da Silva and Al-Khatib 2021). After all, it is the authors who are best placed to correct their own work.”
