The Software Sustainability Institute
By Raniere Silva, Community Officer, Software Sustainability Institute As researchers, we have our own motivation to spend years digging into something until we, hopefully, find something new. Independently from our motivation, it is always nice when we receive recognition for our work, specially in the form of a famous award like the Nobel prize. During the announcement of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2018, one of the awardees, Paul M. Romer, highlighted the need to communicate science clearly – not only using simple words and language if you’re writing for a general audience, e.g. a popular science book, but also embracing reproducibility when writing to researchers peers.

"We are in a position to fundamentally reorganise the heart of the software. By doing so, this will enable us to maintain the software into the future and facilitate the process of adding new functionality to the software ... SSI can assist in having software usable by others not just for a few months or a year, but rather for a much longer software lifetime"
