What are the best journals for publishing re-validations of existing models?

By Annamaria Berea

A few years ago I worked on an ABM that I eventually published in a book. Recently, I have conducted new experiments with the same model, re-analyzed the data and had a different dataset that I used for validation of the model. Where can I publish this new work on an older model? I submitted it to a special issue of a journal, but was rejected as “the model was not original”. While the model is not, the new data analysis and validation are and I think it is even more important within the current discussions about replication crises in science.
