Abstract

This paper presents a simulation of research behaviour, focusing on the process of writing papers, submitting them to journals and conferences, reviewing them, and accepting/rejecting them. The simulation is currently used to evaluate the OpinioNet reputation model, which calculates the reputation of researchers and research work based on the propagation of opinions amongst related entities. The goal is to verify whether the reputation model succeeds in encouraging ‘good’ research behaviour or not, although the simulator is elaborate enough to be used for the analysis of other aspects of paper writing, submission, and review processes.
