Defining and Growing the Field of Metascience

Edit this page


In this talk, Professor Fidler argues how the field of metascience contrasts with many scientific disciplines because it works in service to science with a goal to improve the process by which science is conducted. The importance of creating a defined community is that is allows for norms to develop and for proper credit to be given for this work, without which it will be marginalized or demeaned.
