Editor-in-Chief of Nature Wants Researchers to Make Their Data and Code Available

[From the article “Nature editor: researchers should be forced to make data public” by David Matthews, published at Times Higher Education]
“The editor-in-chief of Nature has said that she would like to force researchers to make the data and code behind their discoveries openly available to improve transparency and make results more reproducible.”
“Appointed in July last year, geneticist Dr Skipper has said that reproducible science is a priority for her tenure. But she stopped short of saying Nature – one of a handful of highly selective multidisciplinary journals perceived to give academic careers a major boost – would actually make data deposition mandatory, although she did say that it was piloting a platform where authors could share source code.”
