Guide for Reproducible Research and Data Science in Jupyter Notebooks

This guide is a community-resource of crowdsourced guidelines and tutorials for reproducible research in Jupyter Notebooks. This resource is a companion to the high-level guide TenRulesJupyter and paper Ten Simple Rules for Reproducible Research in Jupyter Notebook to keep up with the rapidly evolving Jupyter project and to provide in-depth tutorials and examples.

How to Contribute

  • Add specific chapters to this guide, e.g. Deploy your notebooks
  • Flesh out or update materials
  • Explain details with code snippets or figures
  • Demonstrate guidelines through example notebooks
  • Organize content
  • Setup this repo as a Jupyter Book
  • See Open Source Guides for some inspiration
  • Anything else to strengthen the community of Jupyter Notebooks users

For suggestions please open an issue. To contribute, fork this repository and send pull-requests.

Guides and Tutorials


Cookiecutters are project templates to create skeleton repositories for Python and other languages. Here are a couple of examples you may find useful.
