Many journals require that scientific / research code to be open source in order to be published, but simply sharing source code alone isn’t usually enough to draw in new users and contributors. This session will teach researchers and coders the basics of how to make their open source scientific code repositories inclusive and welcoming to contributors. Experienced community managers are also welcome to attend and help pass their knowledge on to others. This session will be run by the Open Life Science team, who collectively have experience working openly, mentoring, and training others in open practice.
