Downloading Code Ocean content
Code Ocean is an open access platform and allows anyone to export capsules, published or private, for reuse or preservation outside the platform. Exporting a capsule will download:
all code and data (with instructions for accessing public datasets);
a Dockerfile specifying the details for the computational environment, building on Docker base images from Code Ocean’s public Docker registry;
instructions for reproducing results locally.
See this blogpost for more on exporting capsules.
Code Ocean and CLOCKSS
Code Ocean has partnered with CLOCKSS to preserve published capsules associated with some of the journals we work with. For more information on how CLOCKSS manages the preservation and access of uploaded content, see https://clockss.org/about/how-clockss-works/. Any further questions about the partnership, and whether your capsule is preserved as part of the arrangement, can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
