May 18, 2018: Keeping arXiv's Light in the Double-blind Obscurity
Over the recent decades, arXiv has created a culture of open-access and early dissemination that has never existed at this scale in science. At the same time, in some disciplines, the peer-review process has become double-blind. >>> read more
April 21, 2018: How to make a good open-science repository?
If you're doing some kind of computational or data-intensive research, this post describes how to make a good open-science repository about your digital experimental results. It summarizes my experience in doing such replication packages over years for my software engineering experiments. >>> read more
October 20, 2017: Open-science and Double-blind Peer-Review
Recently, double-blind peer-review has fallen over my research community as a storm. Unfortunately, beyond its noble goal of reducing unfairness, double-blind peer-review may have detrimental collateral effects on open-science. >>> read more
August 01, 2016: Interesting pointers about open software science
awesome-open-science-software lists resources about open science and software: software as main experimental tool (aka computational methods) software as main study object (software engineering, programming language, systems software, ...). >>> read more
April 23, 2016: Open-science and Travis: continuous integration for reproducible scientific experiments
BLUF: one can use the concepts from continuous integration for achieving nearly perfectly reproducible computational experiments. A continuous integration server is a server that compiles and runs automated tests for each commit of a software project. >>> read more
November 24, 2015: Open-science and code sharing
In my software engineering research, I'm often curious about the prototypes and experiments of others, I want to know more, beyond what's written in the paper, I want to try, explore and experiment myself. >>> read more
April 16, 2013: Six Golden Rules for Writing, Using and Sharing Research Prototypes
A research prototype demonstrates an idea, collects some data for sake of writing a scientific paper. When it's software, it must be considered as a special kind of software. >>> read more
February 13, 2012: Sharing scientific datasets with BitTorrent
Bittorrent is an appropriate technology to share scientific datasets because it relieves web servers of distributing many copies of large files and enables a kind of replication. This documents presents how to share scientific datasets with bitorrents. First, you have to set a tracker and a seeder. >>> read more
February 09, 2012: Sciclomatic: A Peer-to-Peer System for Sharing Scientific Datasets
This post sketches a peer-to-peer system for sharing scientific datasets. Permalink: http://www.monperrus.net/martin/sciclomatic-sharing-scientific-datasets Introduction Academics, students and researchers obtain, create or use data in their experiments. >>> read more
