How can we make research documents reproducible on the internet?
To make research reproducible on the internet,
a browser needs to offer its reader a button next to a result.
offers the reader the recomputation of the result.
Of course, some computations are not easily reproduced because of their
size or because they involve proprietary data.
many researchers want to offer readers their work in a reproducible
All it takes is a little bit of organization on the author's part
and the reader can truely stand on the author's shoulders. Furthermore,
A reproducible research document helps the author to maintain
his research project and its software.
But how can we deliver reproducibility on the internet? How about a
reproducibility button in a browser?
The links below show you my Java approach ...
Unfortunately, I have not had the time to develop a routine system to
turn my Java encoded processing software and their corresponding descriptions
into reproducible research documents. However, here is a first view of
the things that are to come ... (I developed this with Java 1.1)

a reproducible web document with a geophysical application.
This is a hack.

- In SEP's
first Java experience
Ken Lenga and Bob Clapp created a Java viewer for seismic data, and
a Java application that computes a finite-difference operator to the
2-D wave equation.
