Reimagining Research
Reenvisioning the Scholarly Record for Reproducibility

It is now understood that reproducibility in research requires that further artifacts beyond the article need to be curated and made available. Innovations in technology now allow us to include datasets, code, software, protocols and other artifacts as part of the scholarly record. In addition to facilitating reproducibility, Doing so also facilitates reuse.Moving beyond the article to include more holistic curation of artifacts creates a new set of challenges for publishers, researchers, and librarians. Many questions still remain regarding access, business models, licensing, incentives and peer review. This session will address these key questions, and will be delivered by individuals and organizations that have experience with these new tools and policies. The session will start with an overview, paying special attention to the current percentage of artifacts being included as part of the scholarly record and possible funder mandates for preservation and presentation of those artifacts along with th
e article. Speakers will then address four main themes: 1- Access and business model, 2- Licensing, 3- Incentives, and 4- Peer review. Finally, speakers will discuss their current initiatives to include artifacts above and beyond the article.
