Reproducibility and robustness

The Journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations” encourages researchers to maintain transparency in the use of data and methodology in their research, which in turn will ensure future reproducibility of experiments.

The publication of an article in the journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations”, which is an open access journal, implies that the authors agree to make all aspects related to the published research open to the scientific community and readers. Open-source data in articles for conducting research, technologies and methods for conducting research, obtained research results, provides the possibility of reproducing similar experiments by other scientists in the future, their improvement and development.

The authors must support all open data with a complete and accurate description of the experiment (initial data, methods, and results) publishing their articles in the journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations”. At the same time, it is important to describe in detail both the initial idea of the experiment (research), and the final results obtained. Providing data material promotes transparency and reproducibility and allows data to be analyzed if reviewers or editors feel it is necessary to make editorial decisions.

Journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations” strives to publish only reliable results that are approved by using proven techniques and models. It is unethical and unacceptable for authors to misrepresent data or use unverified information. Authors are obligated to test their models and methods for obtaining results. It is necessary for authors to provide information and explanations.

The author should provide access to primary data as well as information and explanations about methodology and analytical procedures, methods, and techniques the results described in the submitted work were acquired.

There are no restrictions on length in descriptions, details that can be provided by authors in the research paper. The editors of the journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations” do not limit the authors regarding the volume of manuscripts. The author should provide access to primary data as well as information and explanations about methodology and analytical procedures, methods, and techniques the results described in the submitted work were acquired. We also request authors to maintain original data and calculations for a reasonable amount of time and, post sets or subsets of the raw data used in the creation of the article on the Internet. Editors fully support authors’ efforts to exchange data.

Journal “Marketing and Management of Innovations” encourages researchers to be transparent about their methodology, which in turn allows to follow a clear and reproducible method. Research papers are based on research data. Access to research data that underlies published results helps ensure successful research replication.

Editors fully support authors’ efforts to exchange data. Sometimes it may be difficult or impossible to provide reproducibility, but we follow the professionalism of the authors. Legal restrictions on data sharing and reuse, such as copyrights and sample donation agreements, are complex, internationally heterogeneous, and present a barrier to reproducibility. Based on previous research, society will benefit most from scientific activity if data can be freely reused without legal or other barriers to new discoveries.

To solve reproducibility issues, stakeholders from throughout the research community must cooperate and align to create a productive research culture that encourages and incorporates reproducibility methods. This could entail deciding on criteria that favor reproducibility, creating incentives for authors to share data.
