Open Science: Code Repository

What is a Code Repository?

Sharing source code and related documentation allows others to reuse and modify your software. A source-code repository can provide a safe environment for your code, offer version control, support collaboration, publish your code to a production server, and keep related analytics.  

Code Repositoriies

The following popular source-code repositories offer you a free account. They may charge users for additional services.



Code Ocean

Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that is dedicated to accelerating computational research collaboration. It creates a standard and executable package called a Capsule in which code, data, computational tools, and results are stored. The package allows researchers to run the code without setting up the environment where the results are produced. 

You can access open access software code and data in Code Ocean with limited capacity for free. Code Ocean may charge for additional capacity.
