New EarthCube Peer-Reviewed Jupyter Notebooks Now Available


Project Jupyter exists to develop open-source software, open-standards, and services for interactive computing across dozens of programming languages. https://jupyter.org

A novel element of the EarthCube 2020 Annual Conference was a call for notebooks, which led to twelve peer-reviewed Jupyter notebooks that encompass an array of geoscience data tools, software, services, and libraries. Each notebook was reviewed by scholars within the geoscience and cyberinfrastructure community at the EarthCube 2020 Annual Conference. These notebooks are now available on GitHub for interested researchers to view and execute, and they will soon be published in the Earth and Space Science Open Archive (ESSOAr).

“Open-source technologies such as these Jupyter notebooks allow the EarthCube community to create and share valuable insights with one another,” said Kenton McHenry, associate director for software at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). “We received more than 20 great submissions in response to our Call for Notebooks and selected these twelve for publication.”

The selected notebooks are now available as follows (click on each title for access):

“These notebooks represent a new element in the scholarly publishing system: they provide us with a means to easily share tested, user-friendly, and interactive workflows,” said Daniel S. Katz, NCSA chief scientist. “Further Calls for Notebooks are now underway and we encourage the community to participate, as well as to provide feedback about how we can better support notebooks in the peer-review and publishing systems.”
