    Melinda Mills and Charles Rahal discuss genome-wide association studies published in the last 13 years, finding increases in sample sizes, rates of discovery, and traits studied over time. They discuss limitations, including sample diversity, and make recommendations for scientists and funding bodies.

    The solutions adopted by the high-energy physics community to foster reproducible research are examples of best practices that could be embraced more widely. This first experience suggests that reproducibility requires going beyond openness.

    Benjamin Turner et al. report an assessment of replicability of task-based fMRI studies as a function of sample size. They find that the degree of replicability for typical samples sizes reported in the literature is modest and advocate for standards requiring larger sample sizes, potentially in excess of N = 100.
