In the News "Modern science relies upon researchers sharing their work so that their peers can check and verify success or failure. But most scientists still don't share one crucial piece of information - the source codes of the computer programs driving much of today's scientific progress." Pretty crazy this isn't the norm yet.

The algorithm and any formulas used will be part of the paper. Someone with significant understanding can reproduce and verify the results.

I don't think it is too different than working against a well written software specification.
