Fall 2023 Research Data Management Seminar Series

The NIH promotes broad dissemination of research products including NIH-funded and/or NIH-developed research software. By releasing software and code you have created and/or developed in your research, you are further contributing to the research landscape and making your approach to research more open, transparent, and reproducible.

GitHub is one of the most widely-used code repositories and is recommended for active software development.

Digital object identifiers (DOIs) allow other researchers to cite your code and lets you track its reuse. To properly share your code, you’ll want to register a DOI for your code by depositing it in an open repository.

This workshop will cover recommended practices for sharing software and code on GitHub, and how to properly cite your code using the GitHub integration with Harvard Dataverse.

Meeta Mistry, Ph.D., Senior Bioinformatics Analyst and Trainer, Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core
