How to disclose data for double-blind review and make it archived open data upon acceptance

Openness in science is key to fostering progress via transparency, reproducibility and replicability. While open access and open data are two fundamental pillars in open science, it is open data that builds the core for excellence in evidence-based research. This is why I have striven for years to bring open science practices, including open access and open data, to software engineering research...

Comparison of Open Access Software Engineering and Information Systems Journals

I am using figshare since one month and I am already loving it. It is currently hosting an appendix for a research paper (in press), a completely open-access paper, and the sources of a software program. In the last two days, I compiled a list of Open Access (i.e., DOAJ-listed), peer-reviewed journals in Software Engineering and Information Systems. It required quite some effort to build this...
