Making computations and publications reproducible with VisTrails

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The VisTrails system supports the creation of reproducible experiments. VisTrails integrates data acquisition, derivation, analysis, and visualization as executable components throughout the scientific exploration process, and through systematic provenance capture, it makes it easier to generate and share reproducible results. Using VisTrails, authors can link results to their provenance, reviewers can assess the experiment's validity, and readers can repeat and utilize the computations.
