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.

Ten years reproducibility challenge: call for participation

Dear all,
I'm delighted to share an interesting initiative that calls for authors to
try to reproduce their own results, dating back 10 years or more, involving
source code they wrote.
There are so many reasons why one may fail: for a starter, one might not even
find the (right version of) the source code of the software written back then!
You can find the details of the call at https://rescience.github.io/ten-years/
