Proprietary Software Poisons Science Aleksa Sarai, 13 November 2015.

As a result of my recent research project (and the one I plan to do next year), I've developed some strong views on how code should be licensed if it is used to prove a result in a journal paper. While papers might explain what their code is doing, it is detrimental to peer review for code used by papers to remain proprietary and restrict the freedoms of other researchers to verify the results of a paper.
