This study investigates the citations of reproducible vs. not reproducible papers and is based on 328 published models, classified by Tiwari et al. based on their reproducibility are analyzed in this study. Hypothese testing is performed using a flexible Bayesian approach for a complete assessment of posteriors. The approach handels outliers via a non-central t distribution. Results show that reproducible papers are significantly more citet between 2013 and 2020, i.e. 10 years after the introduction of SBML. This trend persists also for later periods with more than 95% credibility. In conclusion, this statistical analysis demonstrates long-term benefits of reproducible modeling for the individual researcher and the scientific community.
