The Institute are firm believers in software citation. Citing software, directly or via its associated publications, provides deserved credit for those who develop this vital research infrastructure. In this blog post I look at some ways in which research software developers are helping to promote the citation of software, by making it easier for researchers to do this. That's another thing we are firm believers in, automating the grunt work of using and developing software to free up time for research...

For Open Science, it is important to cite the software you use in your research, as has been mentioned in previous articles on this blog. Particularly, you should cite any software that made a significant or unique impact on your work. Modern research relies heavily on computerised data analysis, and we should elevate its standing to a core research activity with data and software as prime research artefacts. Steps must be taken to preserve and cite software in a sustainable, identifiable…
