DataUp-Date

It’s been over a year since the DataUp tool went live, and we figure it’s time for an update. I’m co-writing this blog post with Susan Borda from UC Merced, who joined the UC3 DataUp project a few months ago. DataUp Version 1 We went live with the DataUp tool in November 2012. Since then, […]

Researchers – get your ORCID

Yesterday I remotely joined a lab meeting at my old stomping grounds, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. My former advisor, Mike Neubert, asked me to join his math ecology lab meeting to “convince them to get ORCID Identifiers. (Or try anyway!)”. As a result, I’ve spent a little bit of time thinking about ORCIDs in the last few […]

Software Carpentry and Data Management

About a year ago, I started hearing about Software Carpentry. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was, but I envisioned tech-types showing up at your house with routers, hard drives, and wireless mice to repair whatever software was damaged by careless fumblings. Of course, this is completely wrong. I now know that it is actually […]

Software for Reproducibility Part 2: The Tools

Last week I wrote about the workshop I attended (Workshop on Software Infrastructure for Reproducibility in Science), held in Brooklyn at the new Center for Urban Science and Progress, NYU. This workshop was made possible by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and brought together heavy-hitters from the reproducibility world who work on software for workflows. I provided some broad-strokes overviews last […]

Software for Reproducibility

Last week I thought a lot about one of the foundational tenets of science: reproducibility. I attended the Workshop on Software Infrastructure for Reproducibility in Science, held in Brooklyn at the new Center for Urban Science and Progress, NYU. This workshop was made possible by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and brought together heavy-hitters from the reproducibility world who […]
