You may have created new code during your research; perhaps as a direct output of your work or as a tool to help you analyze the data you’ve collected. You should also consider including this in your data sharing plan, especially if the code you’ve created is required for others to validate your results.
It’s becoming more common for researchers and developers to share the code they’ve produced. As with sharing other forms of data, there are many benefits of making your code available, including:
Research outputs can take many forms – whether this be an article, code, data, or graphs. At Taylor & Francis we want to help researchers open up all these crucial elements of research, making them transparent and visible. This ensures research results can be verified and reproduced, and that researchers are given credit for all their valuable outputs.
Find out about some of the ways you can open up your research:
Open data and data sharing: Taylor & Francis supports a number of open data initiatives
Registered Reports: Have your study peer reviewed and get an in-principle acceptance before you start collecting your data
Preprints: post your original manuscript to a preprint server before you submit it to a peer reviewed journal
Open Science Badges: icons for your articles when you share data, materials, or preregister
