eLife Rolls Out Executable Research Articles to Aid Reproducibility in Science Publishing

eLife introduced Executable Research Articles (ERAs), which allow “authors to post a computationally reproducible version of their published paper in the [eLife] open-access journal. … The open-source suite of tools that started life as the Reproducible Document Stack is now live on eLife as ERA, delivering a web-native format for making published research more transparent, interactive and reproducible.”

eLife authors who have published papers may now register for ERAs, enabling them to add live code blocks and computed outputs—statistical results, tables, graphs, etc.—to their publication as a complement to the original. Then researchers can “inspect, modify and re-execute the code directly in their browser, enabling them to better understand how figures have been generated, change a plot from one format to another, alter the data range of a specific analysis, and more. Any changes made to the ERA will be limited to the reader’s browsing session and will not affect the published article, ensuring that anyone can experiment with the results safely. Readers can also download the ERA publication, with all the embedded code and data preserved, and use it as a basis for further study or derivative works.”
