By Mike Jackson, Research Software Engineer. When developing research software, we need to know what we are going to write, who it is for (even if this is just us), how we will get it to them, how it will help them, and how we will evaluate whether it has helped them. A Software Management Plan (SMP) can help us think about these and decide upon the processes we will use when developing our software. To help write SMPs, we have now published version 1.0 of our Checklist for a Software Management Plan.

On the 11th of July, The Software Sustainability Institute and Jisc will be running a Software Deposit and Preservation Workshop in Oxford. At this workshop, we will bring together research data managers, digital repository vendors, publishers, policymakers and researchers. We will present guidance on software deposit and preservation, discuss software deposit and preservation from the perspectives of the foregoing stakeholders, and identify ways in which to drive forward the adoption of best practices in software deposit and preservation.
