Applying the Stress guidelines for reproducibility in modeling & Simulation: application to a disease modeling case study

Applying the Stress guidelines for reproducibility in modeling & Simulation: application to a disease modeling case study
Applying the Stress guidelines for reproducibility in modeling & Simulation: application to a disease modeling case study

It is arguably difficult to reproduce the results of published work in Modeling & Simulation (M&S). Authors have certainly raised concerns about this issue and attempts by journals and conferences are being made to improve the situation. As part of a movement to tackle reproducibility in M&S, the Strengthening The Reporting of Empirical Simulation Studies (STRESS) reporting checklists were introduced in 2018. The STRESS guidelines aimed to improve knowledge management in industry and to maximize the chance that all important M&S details are included when writing up simulation research for publication. We extend this work by providing an applied example of using the STRESS-ABS checklist for documenting an Agent Based Simulation model. It is hoped that an applied example will both encourage and guide authors and practitioners to improve their reporting.

Abstract

It is arguably difficult to reproduce the results of published work in Modeling & Simulation (M&S). Authors have certainly raised concerns about this issue and attempts by journals and conferences are being made to improve the situation. As part of a movement to tackle reproducibility in M&S, the Strengthening The Reporting of Empirical Simulation Studies (STRESS) reporting checklists were introduced in 2018. The STRESS guidelines aimed to improve knowledge management in industry and to maximize the chance that all important M&S details are included when writing up simulation research for publication. We extend this work by providing an applied example of using the STRESS-ABS checklist for documenting an Agent Based Simulation model. It is hoped that an applied example will both encourage and guide authors and practitioners to improve their reporting.
