Karger has started a trial with the artificial intelligence (AI) based methods review tool SciScore, which assesses reproducibility of research. Initially, SciScore analyses four of Karger’s journals, including 28,690 articles. This provides insight into the reproducibility and transparency of the research, both on a general level and in-depth on various rigor criteria and research resources. Compliance with rigor criteria is evaluated. The research resources used in the experiment are reviewed to see if they can be uniquely identified using a persistent identifier (Research Resource Identifiers (RRID)). The analysis results in a score for each scientific paper (0-10). The scores are averaged for each journal every year.
The Karger pilot journals are: Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, Liver Cancer, Dermatology, and Cytogenetics and Genome Research.
In the future, Karger plans to use the key performance indicators in the peer review process to improve the reproducibility of the research published by Karger.
