The Mission

The Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative (GRSI) is an independent group of volunteers who help the community by enabling sharing of code and data as a community resource for non-commercial use. The volunteers check the submitted code and certify its replicability, awarding a replicability stamp, which is an additional recognition for authors of accepted papers who are willing to provide a complete implementation of their algorithm, to replicate the results presented in their paper. The replicability stamp is not meant to be a measure of the scientific quality of the paper or of the usefulness of presented algorithms. Rather, it is meant to be an endorsement of the replicability of the results presented in the paper and the recognition of the service provided to the community by releasing the code. Submissions for the replicability stamp will be considered only *after* the paper has been fully accepted. Submissions that are awarded the replicability stamp will receive additional exposure by being listed on this website. The purpose of this stamp is to promote reproducibility of research results and to allow scientists and practitioners to immediately benefit from state-of-the-art research results, without spending months re-implementing the proposed algorithms and trying to find the right parameter values. We also hope that it will indirectly foster scientific progress, since it will allow researchers to reliably compare with and to build upon existing techniques, knowing that they are using exactly the same implementation. This is an initiative supported by a growing list of publishers, journals and conferences.

Application Process

Any paper accepted in or after 2017 at one the following journals is eligible to apply for the stamp: The application process is lightweight, please refer to the website of the journals for their application form. You will have to provide general information on the submission, a representative image, a link to a public git repository with the source code, and instructions on how to compile and replicate the results. The code should compile on a vanilla installation of one of the major operating systems (Linux, MacOSX, or Windows), have a license that allows non-commercial usage, and only depend on libraries that are free for academic or research purposes. The code quality will not be evaluated, the purpose of the stamp is only to simplify replicability of the results: in its simplest form, the code should reproduce the data used to generate every result figure shown in the paper.
