Abstract

This article examines a cross-section of literature and other resources to reveal common reproducibility issues faced by stakeholders regardless of subject area or focus. We identify a variety of issues named as reproducibility barriers, the solutions to such barriers, and reflect on how researchers and information professionals can act to address the ‘reproducibility crisis.’ The finished products of this work include an annotated list of 122 published resources and a primer that identifies and defines key concepts from the resources that contribute to the crisis.
