We’re partnering with the research code experts at Code Ocean to make it easier for you to link your journal articles to the associated code. Find out how readers can also run code directly from your article on Taylor & Francis Online.
It’s becoming more common for researchers and developers to share the code they’ve produced. There are many reasons why you should consider doing so, including:
Code Ocean is a web-based interface that allows you to write code in any open-source programming language with any computing resources needed. It provides an easy way to share, discover, and run code. By using Code Ocean you can increase the visibility to your research, as well as:
Our partnership with Code Ocean also allows readers to access and run code directly from your article.
The latest phase of our partnership with Code Ocean began on February 1, 2021. Code Ocean linking and the ability for readers to use code directly from an article is now available for all new submissions to the following journals:
When you submit your next article to one of these journals, please follow the steps outlined above to ensure your published article is correctly linked. Please do not submit your code to Code Ocean until you are prompted to do so during the manuscript submission process, using a unique link we will send you.
If you’re submitting to a journal which isn’t part of this pilot, or if your article has already been published, you can still deposit your code with Code Ocean. If you do, please provide your article’s DOI. This will create a link from Code Ocean to the paper on Taylor & Francis Online.
Find out how you can also share your Code Ocean compute capsules when publishing with F1000 Research.
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
