How to Read a Research Compendium

  title={How to Read a Research Compendium},
  author={Daniel N{\"u}st and C. Boettiger and B. Marwick},
Researchers spend a great deal of time reading research papers. Keshav (2012) provides a three-pass method to researchers to improve their reading skills. This article extends Keshav's method for reading a research compendium. Research compendia are an increasingly used form of publication, which packages not only the research paper's text and figures, but also all data and software for better reproducibility. We introduce the existing conventions for research compendia and suggest how to… Expand

Jupyter Notebooks - a publishing format for reproducible computational workflows
Jupyter notebooks, a document format for publishing code, results and explanations in a form that is both readable and executable, is presented. Expand
Ten Simple Rules for Reproducible Computational Research
It is emphasized that reproducibility is not only a moral responsibility with respect to the scientific field, but that a lack of reproducible can also be a burden for you as an individual researcher. Expand
Ten Simple Rules for the Open Development of Scientific Software
To make the development of open scientific software more rewarding and the experience of using software more positive, the following ten rules are intended to serve as a guide for any computational scientist. Expand
Statistical Analyses and Reproducible Research
This article describes a software framework for both authoring and distributing integrated, dynamic documents that contain text, code, data, and any auxiliary content needed to recreate the computations in data analyses, methodological descriptions, simulations, and so on. Expand
Computing Environments for Reproducibility: Capturing the "Whole Tale"
The Whole Tale project aims to address technical and institutional barriers by connecting computational, data-intensive research efforts with the larger research process--transforming the knowledge discovery and dissemination process into one where data products are united with research articles to create "living publications" or "tales".
