The rapid change in computing technology have made it difficult to reproduce or verify results obtained with the help of computers. The publication of software and electronic datasets are crucial to improve to make such research transparent, but it remains difficult to publish them in such a way that other scientists can easily re-run a computational analysis several years later. We have been publishing most of our work reproducibly in recent years, using the ActivePapers framework that we are developing to support the specific needs of biomolecular simulation.
