Submitted artifacts can select to be evaluated against the following badges, which are defined in the ACM Artifact Review and Badging policy v1.1
|Author-created artifacts relevant to this paper have been placed on a publicly accessible archival repository. A DOI or link to this repository along with a unique identifier for the object is provided.|
|The artifacts associated with the research are found to be documented, consistent, complete, exercisable, and include appropriate evidence of verification and validation.|
|The main results of the paper have been obtained in a subsequent study by a person or team other than the authors, using, in part, artifacts provided by the author.|
In addition, the AEC may chose to award the “Artifacts Evaluated - Reusable” badge to artifacts submitted for evaluation for the “Artifacts Evaluated - Functional” - this will be done for artifacts that exceed the standards for the “Functional” level: “they are very carefully documented and well-structured to the extent that reuse and repurposing is facilitated”.
