Ewa Deelman and Yolanda Gil co-author Science Article on Reproducibility

December 22, 2016

ISI's Ewa Deelman, Yolanda Gil and six colleagues from other institutions have published an article in Science magazine's policy forum.

Called "Enhancing reproducibility for computational methods," the piece argues that "access to the computational steps taken to process data and generate findings is as important as access to data themselves."

By enabling a researcher to independently reach the same scientific conclusions as another researcher, possibly with different data sets or methods, reproducibility supports scientific knowledge building and education. The Science article is a step toward making computational methods more reproducible.

Science is the flagship publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). As the world's oldest and largest general science organization, the AAAI says Science reaches 10 million people through members and affiliations with more than 250 scientific societies and academies.

The article stems a three-workshop series organized by the AAAS to address transparency and reproducibility in science. The first workshop resulted in publication of Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines that have been signed onto by more than 600 journals.Read More
