Malvika Sharan, Andrew Brown, Warrick Ball and Ben Krikler explore what project ownership means in an open source world. 
How should courses be designed and pitched to appeal to their target audience whilst effectively teaching the skills they may not be aware of or think that they need (but experience tells us benefit learners in the long-term)? Furthermore after a course, what should be the next steps to support the uptake of those skills?
How can we better recognise the value of software (by thinking about impact from the start and resisting ‘secret’ software)? Should funders be the default option for software support (depends on the circumstances), and what other options exist (several)? Should all research software be maintained (probably not)?
Daniel Garijo, Stephan Druskat, Mark Turner and Alex Henderson discuss software metadata: 1) highlight issues with current practices, 2) provide pointers to tools that may help improve the situation and 3) summarise incentives for the research community to start adopting best practices for software metadata.
This is the second part of two blog posts discussing the advantages of adopting FAIR for research software, the current adoption practices of software across organizations, the attitudes towards adoption, and the motivations and barriers for adoption.
