The Policies in Research Organisations for Research Software (PRO4RS) Working Group (WG) – case statement open for comment

  • Creator
  • #97372

    The first draft of the PRO4RS WG case statement is open for community review!
    Community review period is from 11 September 2023 to 11 October 2023.
    The Policies in Research Organisations for Research Software Working Group (PRO4RS WG) will support research performing organisations worldwide to develop, align, and implement policies on research software as a key component of FAIR and open science/scholarship. The WG will identify and analyse existing policies to surface areas where policies are lacking and increase adoption of policies related to research software.
    The PRO4RS WG co-chairs are from different geographic regions and have different skill sets, and they plan to engage with a wide range of research institutions.
    The WG is organising a session during the RDA P21 (Breakout Session 6). This BoF on 26 October aims to engage stakeholders involved in promoting and/or implementing policy that supports research software at research institution level.
    Are you interested in Research Software policies?
    Join the BoF session during the RDA P21 and leave your comments on the case statement!
    Kind regards on behalf of the PRO4RS WG chairs
