Improving reproducibility and reusability in the Journal of Cheminformatics

Journal of Cheminformatics is piloting the inclusion of an additional software reproducibility and reusability review with its new submissions. In addition to regular review, papers submitted to the pilot will undergo enhanced peer review focusing on reproducibility and reusability. The review will examine important details that are complementary to other considerations of reproducibility, but often overlooked. For more information, see here.
