For science to advance, researchers must be able to reproduce pa= st results, and ultimately improve on them. In systems software research, r= esults often depend on myriad implementation details that cannot be conveye= d in a research paper. Although many systems research papers include inform= ation on algorithms, benchmarks, and experimental methodology, this informa= tion ultimately fails to facilitate reproducible results.=20
Jikes RVM is a widely adopted = open source research infrastructure. We would like to encourage researchers= to publish source code used in their studies, and thus, allow others to bu= ild on their results.=20
We hope to facilitate this practice by providing a Research Archive mechanism, = where researchers can contribute patches against specific versions of Jikes= RVM that either reproduce a published research result or are useful resear= ch infrastructure that is not included in the main repository.=20
Patches found in this archive may (or may not) be actively supported by = their author, but none of them are supported by the Jikes RVM core team. Th= e role of the core team is simply to make this archiving service available = to the research community in the hopes of enabling reproducible research re= sults and encouraging researchers to extend/improve on previous enhancement= s that have been made to Jikes RVM.=20
We encourage you to visit and contribute to the Research Archive.
