Citable Code Repositories; free academic github accounts

Github wants your research repositories (code, or otherwise) to be citable, so they've implemented Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) for your repositories.

Github has also created a discount where individual academic researchers can receive a free micro plan with 5 private repos, while research groups can receive a free silver plan with 20 repos.
To set up an academic account on GitHub, first associate an academic email address with your account and then request a GitHub Education discount.
