Columbia University invites researchers to use the Code Ocean reproducibility platform.

Code Ocean allows researchers to create, share, collaborate on, and run code for private projects or to publish in academic journals. It can help meet journal and funder requirements regarding data management and access.

Jointly funded by CUIT and Libraries and in collaboration with EVPR, Columbia University is piloting Code Ocean. This program provides expanded storage capacity and compute time beyond the free tier among other benefits.

Major highlights of this initiative:

Columbia researchers who join the pilot will receive:

  • Upgraded storage of 200 GB
  • Increased monthly compute time of 750 hours (enough to run one computation continuously for a 31-day month or a dedicated single machine)

If you find yourself needing increased storage or compute at any time, please contact your group manager and they can allocate you more.

IMPORTANT: New updates to Code Ocean now live

We have released Git integration to Code Ocean to help researchers record a history of all the changes within a compute capsule over the life of a project. Pilot users will receive priority support and office hours to aid you in your Code Ocean to Git integration tasks.

Code Ocean now incorporates the basics of Git to power your research, including:

  • Committing changes
  • Importing repositories from other Git hosting sites
  • Cloning your repository so you can work locally in another Git-enabled environment and push those changes back to Code Ocean when you are ready
  • Support within Cloud Workstation (our virtual development environment) so you can perform Git commands just as you would on your local machine

To learn more about our latest Git update, visit our knowledgebase that has in-depth tutorials on how to make the most out of our new features.

Code Ocean integrates reproducibility best practices with a tailor-made platform for scientists.

  • Optimized for scientific workflows and programming languages.
  • Primed for reuse, discovery, and citation.
  • Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is assigned to the code, providing correct attribution and connection to the published research.
  • Ensures your code runs today, tomorrow, and long after your lab colleagues graduate.

In addition, all data and code will be fully accessible, retained, and exportable during and after the pilot, allowing you to continue your work.
