Reproducibility as Side Effect

Abstract: The ability to keep records and reproduce experiments is a critical element of the scientific method for any discipline. However, the recording and publishing of research artifacts that allow to reproduce and directly compare against existing research continue to be a challenge. In this paper, we propose an experiment précis framework that helps the experiment repeatability. Guided by the framework, we implement a prototype tool called ReGen which generates repeatable experiment scripts that can be used or shared along with a detailed experiment description automatically. The evaluation shows that ReGen is effective in reducing the researcher’s efforts of creating a repeatable experiment in a real setting.
