ABSTRACT
Reproducible research is the discipline of attaching software code and data to publications, which enables the reader to reproduce, verify, and extend published computational experiments. Instead of being the responsibility of an individual author, computational reproducibility should become the responsibility of open source scientific-software communities. A dedicated community effort can keep a body of computational research alive by actively maintaining its reproducibility. The Madagascar open source software project offers an example of such a community.
