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

H

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...

Opening up your science – including computer science

O

In two days, I will give a 1-hour talk about open science at the University of Oulu, Finland. For this very special occasion, I built a monster presentation about open science principles in computer science. However, it is general enough for all disciplines. Feel free to reuse it.

rchiveit v1.1.0 – search the publisher self-archiving policies

r

I have just released rchiveit v1.1.0 on GitHub. This version brings several improvements, summarized here: It is now possible to search the publisher’s default self-archiving policies. For example, if your conference paper is published by the general ACM Proceedings in the Digital Library, you can just see what ACM default policies are. Share buttons are disabled when the screen is too...

Announcing rchive.it

A

I am glad to announce the public availability of rchiveit, a Web application with the aim to quickly deliver the answer to the question What am I allowed to do with my scientific paper? Three days ago, I played with Bootstrap for the first time. Yes, I have background in Web Engineering but I have never played with Bootstrap before. However, in addition to play around with some CSS and...

Feedback requested for e-print: Traverse the landscape of the mind by walking: an exploration of a new brainstorming practice

F

We (Xiaofeng Wang, Daniel Graziotin, Juha Rikkilä, Pekka Abrahamsson) conducted a pilot study of a new brainstorming technique, which could improve brainstorming session simply by.. thinking and walking. Put in other words.. Doing some brainstorming? Take a hike. Check out this new preprint that investigates brainstorming while walking. — PeerJ Preprints (@PeerJPreprints) August 22, 2013 We...

Comparison of Open Access Software Engineering and Information Systems Journals

C

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...

SematAcc v1.1.0 supports Meteor v0.6.0

S

SematAcc v1.0.0 was out only 3 days ago and Meteor people were already able to make it obsolete.The cutting-edge Meteor v0.6.0 adds several interesting features up to break SematAcc. It also broke one of SematAcc employed libraries, RGraph.
SematAcc v1.1.0 is already out to fix that. It runs the latest RGraph stable release and it is compatible with Meteor v0.6.0.

Datapkg study finished, let’s code

D

My initial study of datapkg code has just finished. The full report can be obtained here (PDF). It is a document which will incrementally be upgraded at each iteration. Sorry for my bad English, I wrote it during late hours of the day 🙂 Let’s summarize it: from what I learned during this software engineering phase, I confirm my first impression that datapkg has not been written to act as a...

Re-creating Franzmagazine.com website

R

Today I am starting a new project with a Prof. Matteo Moretti of the Faculty of Design and Art at the Free University of Bolzano-Bozen. The project consists in re-creating the actual website of Franz Magazine, A Magazine that “observes and investigates the social and cultural phenomena of its territory” in the local area of South Tyrol, Italy. The website will dwell as a heavy...

Introduction to Software Testing

I

Introduction To Software Testing Elements and Concepts – A brief overview Introduction_to_software_testing (PDF) This document contains some basic concepts and definitions about software testing. It has been written for studying a part of the Software Engineering Project course at my University. It is composed by a summary of the intersection of more than 10 different sources, all of which are...
