04:18 jberger sivoais: are you defending?
04:30 sivoais jberger: I don't have a date set down quite yet. I had to move it later as there are a couple software integration related things I need to get working first. But those should be done very, very soon.
04:31 sivoais fortunately, from what I learned getting Travis-CI working for PDL, I won't be having the "it only works on my machine" issues
04:31 sivoais which was a bit of an issue for older code at the lab
04:33 sivoais and the whole thing will be open-source! I just need to get approval on the license and such. And Elsevier actually has a new neuroscience software journal made for FOSS code. So I'll be able to get a publication out of that :-)
04:34 sivoais I need to get to bed now for an early start tomorrow
04:34 * sivoais stretches
04:37 jberger I never did find a good journal to publish my code in
04:37 jberger It's on cpan too but the only real published bit of it is in my thesis
10:35 pdurbin Would it need to be a journal? You could publish code in Zenodo: https://guides.github.com/activities/citable-code/
10:36 pdurbin ... or Dataverse, the project I work on: http://dataverse.org :)
11:35 perigrin joined #pdl
11:58 jberger pdurbin: good ideas
11:59 jberger Is dataverse an application that you deploy or is there a canonical site? I can't quite tell
12:01 pdurbin jberger: bah. we're re-doing that project page. hopefully it will be more clear. see how it says, "Be a part of the community by publishing your data to one of the Dataverse repositories or by setting up a new repository for your organization"?
12:04 pdurbin anyone can deploy Dataverse (it's open source) but the largest installation is https://dataverse.harvard.edu where free hosting is offered. If you click the "cards" at http://dataverse.org you'll see that Odum also offers free hosting.
12:05 jberger Cool
12:26 pdurbin anyway, publishing code is a good thing :)
12:29 jberger My code is on cpan, just nobody knows about it
12:46 pdurbin jberger: you might want to upload a version of it somewhere that would give you a DOI for it
12:54 jberger pdurbin: a doi is better than nothing, but I would like a place to describe it
12:54 jberger Is there any journal that would allow such discussion?
12:59 pdurbin jberger: adding a description should be easy. Here's an example: http://dx.doi.org/10.7910/DVN/24574
13:31 jberger pdurbin: I think I'm not making myself clear, the code is meant to be reusable, I don't think anyone is going to read that doi on it's own
13:32 pdurbin well, CPAN is a great place to put code you want people to reuse
13:32 pdurbin jberger: I guess I'm not sure what you want
13:34 pdurbin jberger: what's wrong with only having your code on CPAN?
13:42 jberger why would any scientist like to publish? I think the code itself has merit for an article, I just don't know who would take it
13:43 jberger the scientific culture is so ... backwards ... on code sharing/reuse that I don't know if there is even a journal that would want an article announcing code
13:49 pdurbin Yeah. But does it have to go in a journal? Maybe publishing it at https://zenodo.org/collection/software is enough.
13:52 jberger these are good options, don't get me wrong, but isn't it interesting that there isn't a computational physics journal or something?
13:53 jberger hmmmmm, http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-computational-physics/
13:55 pdurbin heh
13:56 pdurbin someone in irc.mozilla.org/#sciencelab might know
13:57 jberger of course at the moment if I wanted to publish a new article I would affiliated "independent scholar" I guess
14:37 perigrin left #pdl
