This paper introduced coding guidelines for use by academics developing code as part of their research in areas of computer science or similar disciplines. We introduce the guidelines and discuss their success and popularity as a tool for MSc students undertaking five month research projects. The guidelines lead to the use of comments combined with dOxygen as an agile approach to model both the software and the research ideas as they develop and change.
