Sharing Software and Algorithms Publications that deal with software or algorithms, like those involving large datasets or databases, are relatively new in the life-sciences literature. There are no consistent, accepted community standards for sharing such information. As with the other standards discussed in this report, the committee considers that those for sharing software and algorithms should be guided by UPSIDE, as enunciated for other categories of publication: that the purpose of publication is to enable 37 Copyright © National Academy of Sciences.

For example, most journals today explicitly require that authors provide enough detail about their materials and methods to allow a qualified reader to replicate all experimental procedures. A logical, often implicit, extension of that requirement is that authors must make available the data and materials needed for others to verify or refute the findings reported in a paper. Thus, for example, in a paper citing genetic results from one or a series of organisms, voucher specimens should be cited and deposited in an appropriate public repository where the identity of the organisms can be checked by subsequent workers (with the obvious exception of well-known and easily-available 32 Copyright © National Academy of Sciences.

Html SHARING PUBLICATION-RELATED DATA AND MATERIALS that govern an author’s responsibilities related to publication have always been paramount. As the 1992 National Research Council report Responsible Science observed, “For centuries scientists have relied on each other, on the self correcting mechanisms intrinsic to the nature of science, and on the traditions of their community to safeguard the integrity of the research process. This approach has been successful largely because of the widespread acknowledgement that science cannot work otherwise, and also because high standards and reputation are important to scientists” (NRC, 1992).
