Computational techniques are central in many areas of neuroscience and are relatively easy to share. This paper describes why computer programs underlying scientific publications should be shared and lists simple steps for sharing. Together with ongoing efforts in data sharing, this should aid reproducibility of research.

This article is based on discussions from a workshop to encourage sharing in neuroscience, held in Cambridge, UK, December 2014. It was financially supported and organized by the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (http://www.incf.org), with additional support from the Software Sustainability institute (http://www.software.ac.uk). M.H. was supported by funds from the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Project: Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences.
