Scientific Software and the Open Collaborative Web

Practices vary between scientific domains but all too often the sharing of research software is done on an ad hoc basis between individuals and with little thought about the wider community. With code and computation routinely forming the backbone of many academic endeavours we need to focus on publishing *all* of the products of our research – papers, software, data and provenance. In this talk I will highlight some promising examples from across academia and discuss how software development in the sciences could benefit from the collaboration norms of a modern open source project.
