Code and data, or it didn’t happen | Practical Vision Science 2014-08-05


"There is a new motto for reproducible research: 'code and data or it didn’t happen' (see also here). I want this to apply more often in vision science, too. Since vision science experiments are usually entirely computer-controlled, implementing this should be a lot easier than in some other fields. For example, in social psychology raw data can be paper-based (participants fill out a questionnaire), making sharing that much harder. In my mind, vision science journals should begin requiring raw code, data and stimuli (if they’re pictures that can’t be regenerated) to accompany every published empirical article. The code and data would be maintained by the journal in a data repository (e.g. Why doesn’t this happen already? ..."
