  • Southern Ocean deep mixing band emerges from a competition between winter buoyancy loss and upper stratification strength

    Authors: Romain Caneill, Fabien Roquet, and Jonas Nycander
    DOI: 10.5194/egusphere-2023-2404

    Why should we attempt to reproduce this paper?

    I tried as hard as possible to make it reproducible, which it is on my computer. I would be happy to see if this still works on other computers. Moreover, by allowing easy reproducibility, I hope that other people may easily build research on top of this work.

  • The Polar Transition from Alpha to Beta Regions Set by a Surface Buoyancy Flux Inversion

    Why should we attempt to reproduce this paper?

    I tried hard to make it reproducible, so hopefully this paper can serve as an example on how reproducibility can be achieved. I think that being reproducible with only few commands to type in a terminal is quite an achievment. At least in my field, where I usually see code published along with paper, but with almost no documentation on how to rerun it.

  • Living HTA: Automating Health Technology Assessment with R

    Authors: Robert A. Smith, Paul P. Schneider, Wael Mohammed
    DOI: 10.12688/wellcomeopenres.17933.1
    Submitted by rasmith3    

    Why should we attempt to reproduce this paper?

    We think this is an interesting paper for anyone who wants to learn to build an API with the R package plumber. This is a novel method in health economics, but we believe will help improve the transparency of modelling methods in our field.

  • Laser-assisted propagation of a relativistic electron bunch in air

    Authors: R M G M Trines, A P L Robinson, J R Wilkinson, J N Kirk, D S Hills, R M Deas, S Morris, T Goffrey, K Bennett, T D Arber

    Most electron beam physics is considered in the context of a vacuum, but there are applications to long-range electron beam transmission in air. As particle acceleration sources become more compact, we may have the chance to take particle beams out to the real world. The example provided in the paper describes that of x-ray backscatter detectors, where significantly stronger signals could be achieved by scanning objects with electron beams. This paper forms the basis for a potential new mode of particle-beam research, and it is important to ensure the reproducibility of this work for groups who wish to explore the applications of this new technology.

  • Encapsulated Nanowires: Boosting Electronic Transport in Carbon Nanotubes

    Why should we attempt to reproduce this paper?

    DFT calculations are in principle reproducible between different codes, but differences can arise due to poor choice of convergence tolerances, inappropriate use of pseudopotentials and other numerical considerations. An independent validation of the key quantities needed to compute electrical conductivity would be valuable. In this case we have published our input files for calculating the four quantities needed to parametrise the transport simulations from which we compute the electrical conductivity. These are specifically electronic band structure, phonon dispersions, electron-phonon coupling constants and third derivatives of the force constants. Each in turn in more sensitive to convergence tolerances than the last, and it is the final quantity on which the conclusions of the paper critically depend. Reference output data is provided for comparison at the data URL below. We note that the pristine CNT results (dark red line) in figure 3 are an independent reproduction of earlier work and so we are confident the Boltzmann transport simulations are reproducible. The calculated inputs to these from DFT (in the case of Be encapsulation) have not been independently reproduced to our knowledge.

  • Where should new parkrun events be located? Modelling the potential impact of 200 new events on socio-economic inequalities in access and participation

    If all went right, the analysis should be fully reproducible without the need to make any adjustments. The paper aims to find optimal locations for new parkruns, but we were not 100% sure how 'optimal' should be defined. We provide a few examples, but the code was meant to be flexible enough to allow potential decision makers to specify their own, alternative objectives. The spatial data set is also quite interesting and fun to play around with. Cave: The full analysis takes a while to run (~30+ min) and might require >= 8gb ram.

  • Open Trade Statistics

    Authors: PachĂĄ (Mauricio Vargas SepĂșlveda)
    Submitted by hub-admin    

    Why should we attempt to reproduce this paper?

    The focus of the project is reproducibility. Here we show the differences to access data compared to similar initiatives: Also, similar projects have obscure parts, while our exposes the code from raw data downloading to dashboard creation.
