Merely advertising of the scholarship (1995)

From twenty years eaelier - 1995: WaveLab and Reproducible Research. Jonathan B. Buckheit and David L. Donoho HERE

When we publish articles containing figures which were generated by computer, we also publish the complete software environment which generates the figures.

An article about computational science in a scientific publication is not the scholarship itself, it is merely advertising of the scholarship. The actual scholarship is the complete software development environment and the complete set of instructions which generated the figures.
