If you want to get a quick overview about last year’s reproducibility review, take a look at the presentation by reproducibility committee chair Daniel Nüst at the Munin conference. All non-rejected submissions, i.e., papers that are accepted or have minor revisions only, will be screened for reproducibility based on the information provided in the Data and Software Availability section. The reproducibility review happens after the scientific review, because irreproducible papers will still be published. Successfully reproduced papers will receive the Reproducible AGILE badge, see the 2020 proceedings for some examples.
