Comment: No Money in Replicating Results (Score 4, Insightful) 252

I am not a scientist.

That being said, it's my understanding that most scientists work off of grants, and those grants fund novel research. Replicating results is of obvious importance in validating those results, but doing so seems at odds with the funding mechanisms that are the reality for what I would believe to be most researchers.

Are researchers supposed to replicate the experiments of others in their spare time and on their own dime?

(As rhetorical as that might have sounded, I actually welcome those with first-hand experience to respond to it)
