New papers out about 'Practical Reproducibility in Geo' and the 'Rockerverse'

Two papers have been published this week by o2r team members Daniel and Edzer. They shed a light on the practical aspects of publishing computational geospatial research in a reproducible way and the enourmous number of projects and opportunities of using containers with R to achieve reproducibility. Please share widely!

Practical Reproducibility in Geography and Geosciences

Daniel Nüst and Pebesma, Edzer. 2020. Practical reproducibility in geography and geosciences. Annals of the American Association of Geographers. doi:10.1080/24694452.2020.1806028

The article is not Open Access, but there is an 👉 author accepted manuscript PDF 🔓.

This paper is part of a collection of papers solicited after a workshop early last year. We recommend to look at the other works, as they provide very interesting perspectives that complement the quite technical and practical approach in Daniel and Edzer’s article. Join the discussion on Twitter:

This paper was actually inspired by a post in this blog four years ago and turned into a massive collaborative effort which is now published as Open Access in The R Journal. Join the discussion on Twitter:
