National Information Standards Organization seeks feedback on reproducibility badging

21 May 2020
Groups audience: 

Over the last year, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has convened a reproducibility badging working group formed of representatives from publishers, professional societies, and the research community. This has included Neil Chue Hong from this RDA WG.

This group is now seeking comments from the community on the draft recommended practice document they have produced, Reproducibility Badging and Definitions. This document provides a set of recommended badges to be universally deployed across the scholarly publishing ecosystem to recognise different aspects and stages of making research outputs available, open, reviewable and reproducible in a way that will be easily understood by all. Comments will be accepted through June 18, 2020. Comments are welcomed from potential users and implementors of the recommendations, so we are particularly keen for members of the ReSA community with an interest in FAIR or reproducible research, and those who are part of an editorial team for a journal or conference proceedings to provide feedback.
