On May 31, I made a post here about our R package revisit, which is designed to help remedy the reproducibility crisis in science. The intended user audience includes
- reviewers of research manuscripts submitted for publication,
- scientists who wish to confirm the results in a published paper, and explore alternate analyses, and
- members of the original research team itself, while collaborating during the course of the research.
The package is documented mainly in the README file, but we now also have a paper on arXiv.org, which explains the reproducibility crisis in detail, and how our package addresses it. Reed Davis and I, the authors of the software, are joined in the paper by Prof. Laurel Beckett of the UC Davis Medical School, and Dr. Paul Thompson of Sanford Research.
