Computational reproducibility on Code Ocean means that if a reader sees your code, data, and results published, they are guaranteed to be able to reproduce those results by pressing 'Run' (with some margin for error for stochastic results). This means that if you make a change to the code, data or environment before publishing, you'll be asked to run your code once more. This serves as an additional guarantee of the correctness of the equation: code + environment (+ optional data) = results.  

Metadata-only changes that do not affect reproducibility can be made without re-running your code. You can update a published compute capsule this way.

If this leads to your running out of quota, please write to us at and we will be happy to assist.
