Publishing Scientific Results
For many projects, we will prepare attractive demos. We want to be able to show a working demo at any moment in time. Therefore, we want to have special branches in git that contain fully stand-alone demos, including a slide deck, that can just be checked out and used directly.
Handling datasets and results
Assuming you have only the software in a (private) git repo, you might want to also add and share with others the data and results related to that software:
- Add also the data and figures using git lfs (Git Large File Storage).
- If not, make the repo public.
Citing datasets, software and results
- Make a Zenodo account and link it with your github account as explained on guides.github.com/activities/citable-code
- Make a release in github.
- Zenodo automatically tracks the release and generates a unique DOI.
- Use the DOI for citing your software/data/results.
- A badge can be added to the README reflecting the DOI of the latest release
