About Us

ETS-Data, a publicly accessible database, provides indispensable materials for result replications, including data, codes, scripts, simulation, experiment design and other essential files. These aim to allow other researchers to reproduce and extend excellent research in the transportation community, which enhances the visibility, reputation, credibility and sharing of research publications. ETS-Data also shares materials for other purposes besides research replication, and promotes discovery and sharing in the transportation research community.


Data and Code Disclosure and Sharing Policy

ETS-Data was developed to provide indispensable materials, including data, codes, scripts, simulation, experiment design and other essential files for result replications, which allow other researchers to reproduce and extend excellent research, promoting replicable publications for the transportation research community.

ETS-Data and Materials Use Agreement

If you are downloading any file made available under the Journal replication policy, e.g., COMMTR Replication Package Policy, please note that the downloaded file(s) are to be used only for validating and reproducing the relevant paper's main results using the same data and model(s). It is possible that attempts to replicate an accepted or published paper may fail. If this leads to changes in one or more of the central results of the paper, the first step is to check with the authors of the original paper. If the problem still exists, a follow-up article documenting the mistake(s) and providing the correct solution may be submitted only to the journal, and no other journal, as "Comments on". The follow-up article will go through the usual review process, and will be evaluated in terms of its incremental contribution, correctness, and other relevant review criteria. The writing and submission of the follow-up article does not require permission from author(s) of the original publication.

If you intend to use the materials for any other purposes except validation, you must follow the requirements in the copyright license agreement determined by the authors, obtain corresponding permission from the authors and explicitly clarify the details of using the authors’ materials.
