Overview and general guidelines to submit a contribution to Computo

Overview

Submissions to Computo require both scientific content (typically equations, codes, and figures) and a proof that this content is reproducible. This is achieved via the standard notebook systems available for R, Python, and Julia (Jupyter notebook + Myst and Rmarkdown), coupled with the binder building system.

A Computo submission is thus a git(hub) repository typically containing

  • the source of the notebook (a markdown file with yaml metadata, typically a Rmarkdown or a Jupyter notebook) ;
  • auxiliary files, e.g.: a \(\mathrm{bib}\TeX\) file, some static figures in thefigs/ subdirectory, configuration files for the binder environment to setup the machine that will build the final notebook file (HTML and/or PDF)

The compiled notebook (HTML/PDF files) will be generated directly in the github repository (via a github action). The PDF will be ready to be submitted to the Computo submission platform, and the HTML will be published, if the action is successfull, to a gh-page.

More details can be found in the following templates, which serve as material for starting to write your submission, and as a documentation for doing so. The process is described in a dedicated post.
