Useful Information for RDA COVID-19 Software Subgroup

 

Description:

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Recommendations for policy makers on how to support the research software community to respond to COVID-19 challenges.
  3. A Decision Tree tool to facilitate navigation of good practices for research software and code.

 

Collaboration tools:

Software subgroup folder

Slack channel (then choose #software channel from righthand list)

 

To provide feedback on the "RDA COVID-19 Guidelines and Recommendations":

The current draft of the "RDA COVID-19 Guidelines and Recommendations" can be found in the Outputs section of the main COVID-19 WG webpage; be sure to select the most current version that is attached for review, and provide comments using the "Add new comment" link below the attachments.

Dear fellow Software group members, Hope you're doing well.
