Software Source Code IG

IG Established
 

Software source code plays a critical role in all fields of modern research, where source code is written and developed to address a variety of needs, like cleaning, processing and visualising data.

 

Software source code is a necessary component for research reproducibility and reusability. 

 

Thus software source code should be properly curated in the same way as other research inputs and outputs such as research data and paper publication. Software source code developers and organisations that sponsor software development should also be properly credited and attributed.

 

This interest group will provide a forum to discuss issues on management, sharing, discovery, archival and provenance of software source code. It will pay special attention to source code that generates research data and plays an important role in scientific publications.

 

Information about sessions held at RDA Plenary Meetings can be found on the Group Wiki.

Announcing the Paris Call on Software Source Code

Dear all,
I'm delighted to share the news of the publication of the "Paris Call on Software Source Code".
This Call results from months of intense work in collaboration with Unesco, culminating in a high level international expert meeting at Unesco headquarters in Paris on November 6th and 7th that I had the honor to coordinate.

Preparing for our session at P13: we need your help!

Dear all,
as you have seen, our session proposal for P13 has been accepted,
congratulations!
In the program of our session [1] we have a group activity dedicated to
FAIR principles for Software Source Code, and we would like to ask your
help to make it successful.
May you share on this mailing list pointers to relevant work you are aware
of concerning FAIR principles when it comes to Software Source Code? I
would be very useful if you could provide also a very short summary of what
this relevant work contains.

Reminder: Community call – Open source technology development for science communications and publishing

Hi all,

This is a quick reminder about eLife's open conference call tomorrow, aimed at the users and developers of technology for science communication and publishing to share, learn about and collaborate on their projects.

The call will take place tomorrow (Thursday, June 28) at 11am New York / 4pm London.

The agenda is open to anyone who would like to present, in five minutes or less, an open source project that:
