This week we showcased a new way of peer reviewing software, testing code in an independent manner and providing a CODECHECK “certificate of reproducible computation” when the results in the paper can be reproduced. We’ve written a post on the CODECHECK process featuring a Q&A with CODECHECK founder Stephen Eglan, and here we’ll provide a follow […]

Last Christmas we gave you our heart; okay forget George Michael – we gave you beautiful imaging data sets, Virtual Machines, BYO data parties, GigaGitHub, more open peer review plus much more. However, in 2015 GigaScience has delivered anything but less, with more technical developments and exemplar papers published – GigaScience continues to push the […]

With greater awareness in the difficulties in making scientific research more reproducible, numerous technical fixes are being suggested to move publishing away from static and often un-reproducible papers to more reproducible digital objects that better fit 21st century technology. New research demonstrates one potential approach through publishing open data and code in containerized form using docker, and also allowing scientists to tackle climate change, through better understanding of the production of biofuels.
