Science Code Manifesto

The Science Code Manifesto, wrote by Nick Barnes for the Climate Code Foundation a few years ago, defends that software is an increasingly important part of the scientific method nowadays and, as other scientific resources, it must be also publicly available.

As the manifesto states, «Software is a cornerstone of science. Without software, twenty-first century science would be impossible. Without better software, science cannot progress. But the culture and institutions of science have not yet adjusted to this reality.». It aims to reform them to address this challenge by adopting five principles: Code, Copyright, Citation, Credit and Curation. A deeper discussion on these five principles is available here.
