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.

Software Deposit and Preservation - draft guidance and workshop

Hi All,
Along with my colleague, Mike Jackson, we have been working on a Jisc-funded project as part of their Research Data Shared Service pilot programme to develop guidance for software deposit and preservation for different stakeholders.
We have now released draft versions of this guidance for feedback, and would be grateful for the comments of the RDA software community.
