Validation of thermal comfort map

Hi, whenever I try to use thermal comfort map, like the attached picture, through ladybug plugin and change my ideas to a scientific paper, the referees and editor of journals refuse my attempt and ask me for validation. would you please help me finding ways for validation using this thermal comfort maps? is there any paper that I could validate my paper through it numerically? and also I am curious how can I validate some of my simple ideas experimentally?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
