Transparency in Mathematics Research: MMNP Article Demonstrates Our Open Science Policy

We recently announced that five of our mathematics journals, published in partnership with the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), are advancing open science with a new, prescriptive data and code sharing policy. Earlier, we announced that one of these journals, Mathematical Modelling of Applied Phenomena (MMNP) partnered with Peer Community In (PCI) to enable transparent peer review of preprints. This recently published paper in MMNP demonstrates these policies in action by including a code availability statement, code citation, and a peer review statement.

Maths journals adopt new Data Policy to encourage transparency on research data

Many research papers published in mathematics journals include numerical results obtained through computation. By default, EDP Sciences has a policy of encouraging authors to upload data and code related to their research to an online repository, and to include a data availability statement and data/code citations in their articles. Five of the maths journals published by EDP Sciences in partnership with the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI) have implemented a more prescriptive data sharing policy.
