There is a survey being carried out to capture attitudes of our Modelling & Simulation (M&S) community towards both Reproducibility and Open Science in simulation publishing.
There are major concerns that the results in many published peer-reviewed articles cannot be reproduced or verified independently. Some journals are changing their policies to address these issues. Open Science approaches go further in that they encourage the open sharing of scientific artefacts (e.g. data, software, methods, processes, etc.) under appropriate terms and conditions to enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods. Publishing policies in both Reproducibility and Open Science could have a major impact on how we approach M&S research in the future.
The survey consists of six sections and will take around 20-25 minutes to complete. The results will be published as both a report and a journal paper. Both will be open access.
The survey will be open until December 2018.
