That's the job of the scientific method. It provides an objective, standardized approach to conducting experiments and, in doing so, improves their results. By using a standardized approach in their investigations, scientists can feel confident that they will stick to the facts and limit the influence of personal, preconceived notions.
Even with such a rigorous methodology in place , some scientists still make mistakes. For example, they can mistake a hypothesis for an explanation of a phenomenon without performing experiments.
