Community Call Summary - Code Review in the Lab

Authors: Hao Ye, Melanie Frazier, Julia Stewart-Lowndes, Carl Boettiger, Noam Ross

“Although there are increasing incentives and pressures for researchers to share code (even for projects that are not essentially computational), practices vary widely and standards are mostly non-existent. The practice of reviewing code then falls to researchers and research groups before publication. With that in mind, rOpenSci hosted a discussion thread and a community call to bring together different researchers for a conversation about current practices, and challenges in reviewing code in the lab.”

This post is a summary of the Community Call held October 16, 2018 and covers:

  • Project Structure: A Minimum Prerequisite
  • Teams and Training: Necessary Conditions
  • Review Itself: Few Common Practices
