CFP: Software Citation, Indexing, and Discoverability, Submission Deadline July 16, 2021

Software Citation, Indexing, and Discoverability Submission Deadline: July 16, 2021 Software is increasingly essential to research. It can be viewed as both a tool to be recorded (for reproducibility) and cited (for credit) as a part of scholarly research works, as well as an output of research that can be used, reused, and further developed. Making this happen effectively leads to challenges in how it is cited, indexed, and discovered. These include challenges relating to: software...
