We question whether analytical tools such as Common Workflow Language, which aim to make computational methods “reproducible and shareable”, can stand the test of time (see Nature 573, 149–150; 2019). The long-term validity of computational results will not be testable if the original code cannot be run many years later. Considering the rapidity of transformations in operating systems and programming languages, it is hard to predict the lifetime reproducibility of a particular code. We have ther...

VersionClimber is an automated system to help update the package and data infrastructure of a software application based on priorities that the user has indicated (e.g., I care more about having a recent version of this package than that one). The system does a systematic and heuristically efficient exploration (using bounded upward compatibility) of a version search space in a sandbox environment (Virtual Env or conda env), finally delivering a lexicographically maximum configuration based on t...

There is a good chance that you have never heard of software collapse before, for the simple reason that it's a term I have made up myself two years ago in a blog post. However, if you have been doing computational science for a few years, there is a good chance that you have experienced software collapse, and probably it was not a pleasant experience. In this article, I will explain what software collapse is, what causes it, and how you can manage the risk of it happening to you. What I call so...

Independent replication is one of the most powerful methods to verify published scientific studies. In computational science, it requires the reimplementation of the methods described in the original article by a different team of researchers. Replication is often performed by scientists who wish to gain a better understanding of a published method, but its results are rarely made public. ReScience C is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of high-quality computational replicatio...

Most of today's scientific research relies on computers and software not only for administrational tasks, but also for processing scientific information. Examples of such computer-aided research are the analysis of experimental data or the simulation of phenomena based on theoretical models. With the rapid increase of computational power, scientific software has integrated more and more complex scientific knowledge in a black-box fashion. As a consequence, its users do not know, and don't even h...

Using a simple data analysis as an example, the author explores the relative merits of general-purpose library code and code written for a specific narrow application scenario.
