We are about to publish a paper in PLOS One Computational Biology about an algorithm that we developed. The code will be open-source on GitLab and we want include some obvious way of finding it.
It is suggested here that one should include the link to the code repository directly in the article (ideally the abstract). I think this makes a lot of sense.
However, I am a bit hesitant, because the location of the code might change in the future.
Are there any good ways to work around this? (such as e.g. redirection service, where I could update the URL; perhaps especially for academic work)
Or is there another way of addressing this, such as revising the manuscript (like I said, it is PLOS One).
