    Reliability and Validity indicate the ability of a system or method to perform its required functions under stated conditions for a specified period of time. Generally, reliability is necessary conditions of validity but not sufficient condition, and the composition formula “O=T S R” can be used to measure the relationship between validity and reliability. The main impetus for the development of reliability and validity as a discipline was progress in academic achievement, the actual performance, special training results, psychiatric diagnosis, and ranking estimation. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of research on the research on reliability and validity.
