Wow! That's an absolutely amazing call for papers! Is there by any chance a
list of candidate papers to reproduce, or any way to mine good candidates
using informatics tools?

Dear NEST Users,
I take the opportunity to invite you to participate to this call for
papers on an important topic, which is reproducibility.
I hope to see your submissions soon!
Are you interested in making neuroscience more reproducible?
Have you already tried to replicate a study?
Are you bothered by the "Data and code are available upon reasonable
If your answer to one of the previous questions is "yes", then you could
be interested in this call for papers. With this research topic, we aim to
stimulate neuroscientists from all fields to design and publish works that
rigorously attempt to reproduce landmarks or controversial studies:
We are inviting papers on both:
- "Results reproducibility", i.e., obtain the same results from an
independent study with procedures as closely matched to the original study
- "Inferential reproducibility", i.e. draw the same conclusions from
either an independent replication, using different research methodologies,
of a study or a reanalysis of the original data.
We will consider both confirmatory and negative results, the unique
criteria will be the rigorousness, fairness, and soundness of the
Authors are required to make all materials and methods used to conduct
their research available to other researchers. Data and codes used to
analyze results must comply with FAIR principles and should preferably be
uploaded to an online repository providing a global persistent identifier
(e.g., OSF, Harvard Dataverse, Zenodo).
Authors are also strongly encouraged to subject their codes to an
independent audit at codecheck.org.uk.
I’m very pleased to be launching a new article collection, Reproducibility
in Neuroscience, together with an expert editorial team:
- Alberto Antonietti - Blue Brain Project, Ecole polytechnique fédérale de
Lausanne (EPFL), Geneva, Switzerland
- Reeteka Sud - National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences
(NIMHANS), Bangalore, India
- Nele A Haelterman - Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, United States
- Nafisa M Jadavji - Midwestern University, Glendale, AZ, United States
- Denes Szucs - University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
We’re now in the process of putting together a group of top researchers
whose work we’d like to feature in this collection, and we would like you
to participate. The research topic is hosted by Frontiers in Integrative
Neuroscience, you can find all information here:
Important notice on Publishing Fee (APC) support:
If Frontiers publishing fees are too high for your funding situation, you
are eligible for full or partial APC fee support. In order to apply to fee
support, please complete the fee support application form online, and allow
up to two weeks for Frontiers to review and reply to your request:
