A research project I am involved in is internally performing what we call a “40 hours reproducibility challenge” with several research groups from various subject areas. Basically, with each research group, we try to reproduce the data analysis from a selected paper using open source tools such as R or Python – within a time frame of forty hours for each paper.

What would be good venues/journals to publish a paper summarizing lessons learnt from this experiment? We would appreciate peer review and open access. Are there any journals dealing specifically with (analytical) reproducibility and replicability? Would our topic be welcome in more general journals?

Maybe some journal that deals with data analysis and statistics?


Unfortunately not all of them are equally open science friendly ...

Check out ReScience, aimed at replicating already published research: https://rescience.github.io/

Openly peer-reviewed via pull-requests on GitHub and also published there.

Such papers would be welcome at Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO): http://riojournal.com/ . One of its article types are replication studies.

Ask Open Science used to be called Open Science Q&A but we changed the name when we registered the domain ask-open-science.org. Everything else stays the same: We are still hosted by Bielefeld University Library.
