Reproducible Science is good. Replicated Science is better.

ReScience C is an open-access peer-reviewed journal that targets computational research and encourages the explicit replication of already published research, promoting new and open-source implementations in order to ensure that the original research is reproducible.

To achieve this goal, the whole publishing chain is radically different from other traditional scientific journals. ReScience C lives on GitHub where each new implementation of a computational study is made available together with comments, explanations and tests. Each submission takes the form of an issue that is publicly reviewed and tested in order to guarantee that any researcher can re-use it. If you ever replicated computational results (or failed at) from the literature in your research, ReScience C is the perfect place to publish your new implementation.

ReScience C is collaborative and open by design. Everything can be forked and modified. Don’t hesitate to write a submission, join us and to become a reviewer.

  • ReScience (R)evolution

    Four years ago, we launched ReScience, a new scientific journal aimed at publishing the replication of existing computational research. Since ReScience published its first article, things have been going steadily. We are still alive, independent and without a budget. In the meantime, we have published around 25 articles and the initial has grown from around 10 to roughly 100 members (editors and reviewers), we have advertised ReScience at several conferences worldwide, gave some interviews, and published an article introducing ReScience in PeerJ Computer Sience. Based on our experience at managing the journal during these four years, we thought that time was ripe for some changes. Read our editorial if you want to know more.
