Scientific Constants

A fun pointer I picked up at the eScience institute recently is where to find constants in python: scipy.constants http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/constants.html

or, if you fancy units, astropy.constants http://docs.astropy.org/en/stable/constants/index.html

I wonder if this will be useful: Modeling Good Research Practices—Overview: A Report of the ISPOR-SMDM Modeling Good Research Practices Task Force-1 http://www.ispor.org/workpaper/Modeling_Methods/Modeling_Good_Research_Practices_Overview-1.pdf

It has quite a lot of best practices!
