Jeffrey Carver, Jeremy Cohen and Caroline Jay explore the practicalities and relative pros and cons of in-person, remote, and hybrid modes of working that are common to the vast majority of research software roles.
We have published 'Good Practice in Submitting Software Outputs for REF 2021'. This was developed in consultation with Research Excellence Framework (REF) sub-panel 11 and has been approved by all other panels, so it can be used by the whole research community.

The following guidance on good practice in submitting software outputs to REF 2021 has been developed by the UK Software Sustainability Institute in consultation with REF 2021 Sub-panel 11. It should be read in conjunction with the information already provided in the Guidance on Submissions (REF 2019/01, Annex K) and Panel Criteria and Working Methods (REF 2019/02, Paragraph 254 and Annex B).

How should we build the research software of the future? This was the question under consideration at the Dagstuhl Perspective’s Workshop ‘Engineering Academic Software’, co-organised by the Software Sustainability Institute’s Manchester PI Carole Goble. Experts in the area from across the world spent an intensive week presenting, discussing, debating and writing, to define current problems…
