The two main points of the OpenFOAM® Journal - Reproducibility


Authors wishing to submit a manuscript into the full papers and technical notes sections are required to fulfill the following criterion:

The default expectation for papers presenting code development is that new source code with a test case setup is published along with the paper. If the authors choose not to provide the source files along with the publication, the Editors and Reviewers may choose to accept manuscripts without accompanying code, case setup files etc., if it is assessed that the level of detail in the manuscript itself is sufficient to reproduce the results of the paper and the benefit of the presented work to the OpenFOAM® community is clearly outlined.

Next week we will talk about reproducibility in validation and verification papers and how you can submit manuscripts with confidential geometries and information.
