Useful Information for RDA COVID-19 Software Subgroup
Software is essential in the analysis and processing of research data. For the RDA COVID-19 WG it represents a cross-cutting theme with an impact in all of the different sub-groups. The goal of this subgroup is to provide over-arching guidance on software use and development with respect to COVID-19 research and also to coordinate specific guidance for the individual sub-groups. This group is supported by the Research Software Alliance (ReSA).
Software subgroup priorities:
- A set of guideline documents for the research community that highlight the key practices for the development and (re)use of research software and code.
- Recommendations for policy makers on how to support the research software community to respond to COVID-19 challenges.
- A Decision Tree tool to facilitate navigation of good practices for research software and code.
