Open data and open source software might be part of the solution to sciences reproducibility crisis, but they are insufficient to guarantee reproducibility. Requiring minimal end-user expertise, the encapsulator system creates a time capsule with reproducible code in a self-contained computational environment. encapsulator provides end users with a fully featured desktop environment for reproducible research.
