Discarding Obsolete Information in a Replicated Database System

S.K. Sarin, N.A. Lynch
1987 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
A replicated database architecture is described in which updates processed at a site must be saved to allow reconcilliation of newly arriving updates in a way that preserves mutual consistency.  ...  A protocol for permanent removal of sites is also described, which will allow the discarding of updates to continue when one or more sites crash and are expected not to recover.  ...  Siegel for their suggestions during the development of these protocols.  ...

Does health informatics have a replication crisis?

Enrico Coiera, Elske Ammenwerth, Andrew Georgiou, Farah Magrabi
2018 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
Results: While there is growing interest in re-analysis of existing data, experimental replication studies appear uncommon in informatics.  ...  Conclusions: The cost of poor replication is a weakening in the quality of published research and the evidencebased foundation of health informatics.  ...  the release of study data allows other scientists to scrutinize a study, checking for integrity of the primary data, and carry out essential replication of statistical analyses. 34 Conflict of interest  ...

Reproducible and replicable CFD: it's harder than you think [article]

Olivier Mesnard, Lorena A. Barba
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Completing a full replication study of our previously published findings on bluff-body aerodynamics was harder than we thought.  ...  Despite the fact that we have good reproducible-research practices, sharing our code and data openly. Here's what we learned from three years, four CFD codes and hundreds of runs.  ...  LAB would like to acknowledge the hospitality of the Berkeley Institute of Data Science (BIDS), where this paper was written.  ...

DNAscent v2: Detecting Replication Forks in Nanopore Sequencing Data with Deep Learning [article]

Michael A Boemo
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
The detection of base analogues in Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) sequencing reads has become a promising new method for the high-throughput measurement of DNA replication dynamics with single-molecule  ...  This paper introduces DNAscent v2, software that uses a residual neural network to achieve fast, accurate detection of the thymidine analogue BrdU with single-base resolution.  ...  With these improvements, less data is required to create whole-genome maps of replication origin and termination site locations, which is particularly important for studying replication in larger genomes  ...

Designing Requirements Engineering Research

2007 2007 Fifth International Workshop on Comparative Evaluation in Requirements Engineering  
In the case of requirements engineering research-and more generally software engineering research-there is a confusion about the relative roles of research and about design and the methods appropriate  ...  But despite these differences, research methods for the engineering sciences are no different than research methods for any other kind of science. At most there is a difference in emphasis.  ...  For example, an investigation of communication patterns that occur when software engineers use a particular design notation, concerns communication phenomena that could occur in other human activities  ...
