In May I started a consultancy project with Trung Dong Huynh, Luc Moreau and Danius Michaelides of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. As part of their research into provenance, they have developed the Southampton Provenance Tool Suite, a suite of software, libraries and services to capture, store and visualise provenance compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) PROV standards. The goal of the consultancy was to develop an infrastructure, which systematically checks convertibility and round-trip…

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...​

As part of recent open call…

The Software Sustainability Institute has successfully assisted researchers with their software in a number of Research Software Group projects. Here is what some of them have to say about collaborating with the Institute:

"We are in a position to fundamentally reorganise the heart of the software. By doing so, this will enable us to maintain the software into the future and facilitate the process of adding new functionality to the software ... SSI can assist in having software usable by others not just for a few months or a year, but rather for a much longer software lifetime"…

As we complete work with projects, we will write up each project as a case study.

We are working with the RTI-VIPS project to simplify the deployment process for their Reflectance Transformation Imaging software, packaging these complex components into an installer designed for use by researchers
