Guide for Community

Welcome to the guide for notebooks community of the EDS book!

Before you begin this process, please be sure to understand how the publication process works.

We have a code of conduct which is mandatory for everyone involved in the review process of our notebooks.

Below you will find the main steps we suggest to follow to participate in a discussion of a submitted notebook to EDS book.

Scope and Aims

Thank you for considering contributing to the review workflow of a notebook submission to EDS book. Our review process aims to be open, collaborative, transparent and inclusive. We therefore welcome community feedback from a diversity of background and with varying levels of programming/domain expertise.

Notebook Idea

We highly appreciate providing feedback to the notebook idea. Any kind of suggestion related to datasets, open-source packages or ecosystems, credits, etc would be valuable for authors.

In addition to the above contribution, anyone from the community with not much programming skills is welcome to suggest a Notebook Idea and ask for help to materialize it as a notebook submission. Please refer to the section of Notebook Idea in the guidelines for authors to get further details of the process.


We encourage post-publication feedback from anyone interested in published notebooks in EDS book. You can report bugs and derivative work in the notebook repository hosted by the eds-book-gallery organisation (see for instance a PR in the DeepForest notebook).

Editors-in-Chief will contact notebook authors when changes are considerably relevant for either narrative or interactive contents. If the authors consider suggestions as a substantial contribution, EiC will acknowledge it by adding the contributor’s name to the citation of the notebook.
