EOSC document on Scholarly Infrastructures for Research Software now open for public consultation

23 Oct 2020

[ message sent to CURE-FAIR WG, PID IG, SSC IG, SCID WG, and FAIR4RS WG ]
Dear all,
as many of you surely know already, the EOSC

is making available for public comment several key documents this week
during the EOSC (virtual) Symposium
One of these documents is dedicated to the future of *scholarly
infrastructures relevant for research software*, addressing in particular
the issues one faces when *archiving, referencing and describing*
(research) software source code, as well as giving proper *credit* to its
This document was developed over four intense months of work from the EOSC
SIRS Task Force that I had the honor to chair together with Jose Benito
Gonzalez from Zenodo/CERN at the request of Jean-Francois Abramatic, chair
of the EOSC Architecture WG.
The task force brought together members of the EOSC Architecture working
group and representatives of 9 established infrastructures of different
scope and size that are already concretely confronted with these issues
when handling (research) software: three *archives*, HAL, Zenodo and
Software Heritage, three Open Access *publishers*, Dagstuhl, eLife and
IPOL, and three *aggregators*, OpenAire, ScanR and swMath.
Jean-Francois Abramatic's announcement can be found in a dedicated blog post

The document is open to public consultation until November 10th, and can be
accessed online

right away.
it contains a wealth of information that may be of interest to different
RDA groups: with clear examples from real world infrastructures, a broad
panel of detailed use cases, and a roadmap for a future architecture of
collaborating infrastructures leveraging common standards for metadata, and
adopting widely intrinsic and extrinsic identifiers

I hope you will find this material useful, and we look forward to your
feedback and contributions.
