Verification for scientists

Verification is a critical element in any scientific assessment. While many scientists would opt to carry out their own verification analyses, there could be good reasons to engage a third party for this:

  • Verification requires significant resources that could be allocated to other activities;
  • While experts in their disciplines, scientists do not necessarily have to be experts in forecast verification;
  • Scientists may benefit from a completely honest assessment of their forecasts by a third party. can partake in your scientific endeavours and in various roles: as a co-author in your publication or as a completely independent reviewer of the quality of your forecasts.
