rOpenSci HQ

  • We’ve added six new people to our Community page - All from new packages contributed via our onboarding/software review process. Welcome Maëlle, Javier, David, Peter, Mark, and Gordon!



We accept community contributed packages via our onboarding system - a software review system, sorta like scholarly paper review, but way better. We’ll highlight new pacakages here that have come through this system. A huge thanks to our reviewers, who do a lot of work reviewing (see the blog post on our review system), and the authors of the packages!

The following are rOpenSci packages that have recently gone through our onboarding process:
