Code as a Research Object

This post originally appeared on the Software Carpentry website.

The Mozilla Science Lab's newest project extends our existing work around code as a research object, exploring how we can better integrate code and scientific software into the scholarly workflow. The project will build and test a bridge to allow users to push code from their GitHub repository to figshare, providing a Digital Object Identifier for the code. We will also be working on a best practice standard (like MIAME for code) so that each research object has sufficient documentation to make it possible to meaningfully use.

For more information, please see the full post on the MSL website. And please join us for our December 12 community call, where we'll be talking with Ed Lazowska about the newly-announced data science centers, and with Arfon Smith and Mark Hahnel about this project.
