"'Reproducibility editor' Victoria Stodden explains the growing movement to make code and data available to others.
...How should researchers make their computational results more reproducible?
Get used to the idea of sharing. First, throw stuff out there — in repositories such as GitHub or Dryad, or in the Harvard Dataverse Network. Even sharing on your website is better than leaving data on your hard drive. Then start thinking about the details. Do you have sufficient metadata? Is it in a discoverable place? All of those things can come in time.
Do you see open data becoming the status quo?
The idea that people should be able to get hold of code and data as the general default, that's where we are moving. We're leaving the world of a narrative that depends on computational work without any supporting digital artefacts."
