Frictionless Data improves not just machine readability of scientific articles, but also enables humans to directly interact with the data within the article itself. A new article in GigaByte demonstrates frictionless data can help bring papers to life with interactive figures.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) hosted the virtual workshop “Changing the Culture of Data Management and Sharing”. Here we have a write-up of the event.

Today GigaByte publishes its first Executable Research Article (ERA), using technology from Stencila and Code Ocean to showcase interactive and executable versions of the figures.

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 […]

Out today in GigaScience is ShinyLearner, a new tool to make it easier to perform benchmark comparisons of classification algorithms. This tool stands out by making this process super systematic and reproducible, and despite needing to interface with many different libraries and languages it uses software containers (and a CodeOcean demo) so end users don’t […]

In this data-driven era, research is faced with new challenges, from sharing, storing and accessing data, including how to better integrate data to answer big questions in science. With many data repositories available, it is hard to maintain them all – some repositories are forced to close – meaning loss of access to invaluable datasets. […]

At GigaScience as our focus is on reproducibility rather than subjective impact, it can be challenging at times to judge this in our papers. Targeting the “bleeding edge” of data-driven research, more and more of our papers utilise technologies, such as Jupyter notebooks, Virtual Machines, and Containers such as Docker. Working these tools in to […]
