Academic WG next meeting: Policy and Guide for publishing OSS as research

Next event: SustainOSS Academic WG: Developing a Checklist/Policy for Publishing OSS Tickets, Thu, May 30, 2024 at 12:00 PM | Eventbrite

May 30th, 12:00pm EDT.

Open source software can be considered a research object in itself, as the product of creative scientific work. There are many options for publishing code as a citable object with DOIs - you can check it into Zenodo, use GitHub, add it to an institutional archive, publish it in JOSS, and so on. However, there is a lack of clear, publicly-written and accessible policies for explaining when to choose any of these options, and most researchers go through the process again each time.

In this hour, we hope to work on a shared document looking at the different ways of publishing OSS code as a research object. The goal is to build a publicly accessible, open-access, freely-licensed policy for publishing code as research, which can be used by independent researchers, labs, or research institutions across different domains.

Join us for this hour long discuss and coworking session.

Notes will be held here: OpenDev Etherpad. If you want to work on the doc before hand, please add what you can!
