Experiences as a first time rOpenSci package reviewer

(This article was first published on rOpenSci - open tools for open science, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

It all started January 26th this year when I signed up to volunteer as a reviewer for R packages submitted to rOpenSci. My main motivation for wanting to volunteer was to learn something new and to contribute to the R open source community. If you are wondering why the people behind rOpenSci are doing this, you can read How rOpenSci uses Code Review to Promote Reproducible Science.
Three months later I was contacted by Maelle Salmon asking whether I was interested in reviewing the R package patentsview for rOpenSci.
