Online seminar about software citations (INCF/ONCS Software Working Group)

Maybe of interest to some of you:

In the next developer session at the INCF/OCNS Software Working Group, Daniel S Katz and Neil Chue Hong will discuss principles of citing research software.

Where: Zoom: Launch Meeting - Zoom
When: November 22, 2021, 1600 UTC

The abstract for the talk is below:

Today, software is a key part of almost all research, and the development and maintenance of this software is done by human beings, often in academia. It’s essential that these activities be seen as a valued element of scholarly work so that the people who do it have career paths that encourage them to continue to do it. One means of accomplishing this is to use the existing scholarly citation system.

The FORCE11 Software Citation working group[1] developed a set of Software Citation Principles in 2016[2], and since then, the FORCE11 Software Citation Implementation working group[3] has been working with many types of stakeholders, including publishers, repositories, and standards, to implement the principles. We’ll talk about this work, the changes we’ve seen, what still needs to be done, and how the INCF community can participate.


The session is open to all, but requires you to login to Zoom to limit spam.
