The Recomputation Manifesto [article]

Ian P. Gent
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Unfortunately, the discipline of Computer Science has never treated replication seriously, even though computers are very good at doing the same thing over and over again.  ...  Replication of scientific experiments is critical to the advance of science.  ...  Acknowledgements I wish to thank many scientists I have discussed these issues with over the years, for example my fellow authors of [9] .  ...

A data-driven network approach for characterization of political parties' ideology dynamics

Josemar Faustino, Hugo Barbosa, Eraldo Ribeiro, Ronaldo Menezes
2019 Applied Network Science  
This alignment gives rise to some of the most powerful social structures in modern democracies, the political parties.  ...  The model is applied to the Brazilian case and yields results consistent with existing literature in the Brazilian political scenario while addressing data scarcity issues in existing methodologies.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank all BioComplex lab members, Amanda de Oliveira, Leto Peel, and the anonymous reviewers for helpful comments and suggestions.  ...

., politician speeches or party manifestos). Existing models scale texts based on relative word usage and cannot be used for cross-lingual analyses.  ...  Experimental results show that the semantically-informed scaling models better predict the party positions than the existing word-based models in two different political dimensions.  ...  Finally, after obtaining the positions of the non-pivot texts, we recompute the positions for the two pivot texts. Position propagation.  ...

Election Laws, Disproportionality and Median Correspondence: Implications for Two Visions of Democracy

G. BINGHAM POWELL JR, GEORG S. VANBERG
2000 British Journal of Political Science  
We analyse the effect of election rules on both vote-seat correspondence and median left-right correspondence in seventy elections in seventeen countries.  ...  We show theoretically the stringent conditions necessary to reduce vote-seat disproportionality in high threshold systems and empirically their high variance (and higher levels) of distortion.  ...  Finally, the last column shows the results based on the transformed manifestos data.  ...

"Can I Implement Your Algorithm?": A Model for Reproducible Research Software [article]

Tom Crick, Benjamin A. Hall, Samin Ishtiaq
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In computer science and related computational disciplines such as systems biology, the issues closely revolve around the ability to implement novel algorithms and approaches.  ...  Taking an approach from the literature and applying it to a new codebase frequently requires local knowledge missing from the published manuscripts and project websites.  ...  Nevertheless, there has been previous work in this area [11] , [12] , as well as a range of manifestos for reproducible research and community initiatives, such as the Recomputation Manifesto [13]  ...

A manifesto for model merging

Greg Brunet, Marsha Chechik, Steve Easterbrook, Shiva Nejati, Nan Niu, Mehrdad Sabetzadeh
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 international workshop on Global integrated model management - GaMMa '06  
In this paper, we present a manifesto for research on model merging.  ...  Existing approaches to model merging make assumptions about the types of model to be merged, and the nature of the relationship between them. This makes it hard to compare approaches.  ...  Models may evolve through a number of different versions, so that merges may need to be recomputed if the source models are updated.  ...
