B - Code share

Code share. (Editorial). Nature 2014;514:536
(doi: 10.1038/514536a)
 
A core element of many papers is the computercode used by authors in models, simulations and data analysis. In an ideal world, this code would always be transportable and easily used by others. Nature editorial policy now mandates that when code is central to reaching a paper’s conclusions, it requires a statement describing whether that code is available and setting out any restrictions on accessibility.
