Since first writing my object-oriented staircase routine, I have found plenty of use for it both in my own research and in lending it out to others. Previously, I had only made the code publicly available on blog posts here, which was less than ideal for a few reasons, including:
There was insufficient capacity to put up additional code with working examples etc.
Incremental updates to the code were a hassle to publish.
There was no easy way to cite the use of the code in projects.
I have now removed the code from those posts and replaced it with a link to a GitHub repository: MatlabStaircase
I have also paired the project with Zenodo, so that each “release” of the code (starting with v0.9.0, the version taken from my blog post) will be citeable with a DOI. If you use the code in your project then please do cite it. The current version is:
Alex S Baldwin. (2019, July 2). alexsbaldwin/MatlabStaircase: v0.9.0 (Version v0.9.0). Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3266142
This move also fits in with an overall shift I am trying to make towards more “open science” practices. Hopefully I will be able to tell you more about those soon.
