Ecologists and data managers write significant amounts of code for data manipulation in preparation for publication and analysis. However, publishing and sharing this code is not a common practice and is hampered by the lack of thematic code registries that are designed to make code easily discoverable and reusable. In this session we will introduce a new data preparation code registry that has recently been established. It’s focus is on code or workflow scripts developed for common procedures ecologists and information managers encounter when organizing, cleaning, manipulating, and harmonizing data. It will live in the niche between scientific analysis and modeling code and short code snippets found on online community help boards.
