Open Science Fund awards CODECHECKing goes NL

We congratulate Frank Ostermann (UT-ITC) and his team to their achievement! Here a description of their project: Many research outputs rely on computational methods. Open Science principles ask for those to be shared and to be reproducible. However, in traditional scientific publishing, computational methods are rarely re-run during review. We aim to check the computational workflows of at least 50 scientific articles for reproducibility, and we aim to reach an agreement with journal editors to establish such a check routinely in their review process. To kickstart both, we will organise roadshows at four locations to bring experienced and new code reviewers, authors, and editors together to implement codechecking in a sustainable way. Read more
