FAIR Software? How can we make it easier to find, access, deposit and reuse software?
Chue Hong, Neil
With FAIR data all the vogue, what about the software that’s required to analyse and visualise it? How can we make software easier to find, access, and reuse? In particular, can we use certification or assessment techniques to improve the quality and sustainability of software? How do other data initiatives like CoreTrustSeal and the proposed revisions to the DataCite schema fit in? This talk provides a brief summary of the current state of “software as open research data” and is based on two presentations by the speaker at the Research Data Alliance 10th Plenary meeting.
