Making Code and Software Open: Connecting GitHub and Data Repositories
By releasing software and code you have created and/or developed in your research, you are further contributing to the research landscape and making your approach to research more open, transparent, and reproducible. You can also keep track of versions and track download and citation statistics. GitHub is one of the most widely-used code repositories and is recommended for active software development.
Digital object identifiers (DOIs) allow other researchers to cite your code and lets you track its reuse. In order to properly share your code, you'll want to register a DOI for your code by depositing it in an open repository.
This workshop will cover recommended practices for sharing software and code on GitHub, and how to properly cite your code using the GitHub integration with Harvard Dataverse and Zenodo.
