Dr Daniel S. Katz will talk at a Helmholtz Open Science Webinar in August about "Using citation to provide credit for software contributions". Most research today in many fields is dependent on software, but academic culture does not reward development, support, and maintenance of that software. A potential method to provide such credit is to insert software into the current publication/citation system. This talk will discuss an effort that is underway to do this, the FORCE11 Software Citation Implementation working group.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 9 August 2017, 3 to 3.30 pm CEST with a rerun on
Monday, 14 August 2017, 3 to 3.30 pm CEST.
Registration: There isn't any registration required. Please go to the instructions page for details on how to access the webinars.
