In this paper, we first discuss the level of compliance for timetabling research to two important research qualities, namely measurability and reproducibility, analyzing what we believe are the most important contributions in the literature. Secondly, we discuss some practices that, in our opinion, could contribute to the improvement on the two aforementioned qualities for future papers in timetabling research. For the sake of brevity, we restrict our scope to university timetabling problems (exams, courses, or events), and thus we leave out other equally important timetabling problems, such as high-school, employee, and transportation timetabling.

Abstract

In this paper, we first discuss the level of compliance for timetabling research to two important research qualities, namely measurability and reproducibility, analyzing what we believe are the most important contributions in the literature. Secondly, we discuss some practices that, in our opinion, could contribute to the improvement on the two aforementioned qualities for future papers in timetabling research. For the sake of brevity, we restrict our scope to university timetabling problems (exams, courses, or events), and thus we leave out other equally important timetabling problems, such as high-school, employee, and transportation timetabling.
