Reproducibility & Data sharing policy

Open access data sharing|

LUMEN is adhering to a data sharing policy and makes data available to secondary users, including by providing scientific content online open access, e.g. as supplementary files to a journal article.

This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

We invite you to consult the Directory of Open Access Journals website, in order to see the policy LUMEN adheres for its journals related to Open Access. LUMEN applies the DOAJ's principle of Open access for its digital content -  " Open Access is only when digital content is freely available online AND user rights and the terms of copyright are defined.

Reproducibility policy |

BRAIN Journal adheres to the NCBI guidelines on reproducibility and replicability.  Reproducibility is a fundamental principle in the scientific method, who describes the ability to take the original researcher’s data and analysis to generate the same results. Reproducibility is often used interchangeably with replicability, another fundamental principle in which a researcher collects new data to arrive at the same scientific findings and conclusions as to the previous study. The official definition supported by NCBI is as follows: “the ability to obtain consistent computational results using the same input data, computational steps, methods, code, and conditions of analysis” (Reproducibility and Replicability in Science, 2019)
