Preparing computer code for peer-review: Nature journal guidelines
Computer code is used to analyse data in research studies across many fields including epidemiology, biomedical science, computational biology and physics. Many findings now depend on such analyses. What role do journals play in ensuring transparency and reproducibility of computer code used to generate research findings? How might this fit in with our efforts, as scientists, to reduce errors inRead more
Errors in science: I make them, do you?
In this, the digital age, we rely heavily on computers. We use them to store, share and analyse our data. We use them to write and submit our scientific manuscripts. We use them to make figures and present our results. We use them to access others research. Yes, we scientists use computers a lot. But are we infallible in ourRead more
