Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification (VVUQ) disseminates original research in the development and application of methods for performing code and solution (calculation) verification, simulation validation, and simulation and experimental uncertainty quantification. The application of verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification to discipline-specific examples are considered important contributions to this journal. Validation experiments and data uncertainty, simulation challenge problems, new approaches to VVUQ, discipline-specific examples and methods, and developments in and demonstration of standards of practice for verification and validation are examples of relevant topics to this journal.

The journal is cross cutting and serves a broad audience of engineers and scientists in many disciplines for which modeling and simulation and the methods to assess accuracy of their results are important.
