Research Software Camps

The Software Sustainability Institute’s (SSI) Research Software Camp on research accessibility took place from 21 February to 5 March 2021. In this post, we will share how we used relevant sections of the SSI Event Organisation Guide to plan, organise, and deliver the Camp.
It’s the end of the second and final week of our inaugural Research Software Camp, which has focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. Read some of the highlights from week two.
We think research reproducibility is super important! Reproducible research is necessary to ensure scientific outputs can be trusted and built upon in future work.  An important aspect of reproducible research is computational reproducibility. Binder is a great tool to help you do this easily. Here we offer some top tips so you can make the most out of Binder.
Yo Yehudi, Kaitlin Stack Whitney and Malvika Sharan describe how to structure online group calls for successful, multimodal collaboration among people who communicate in different ways.
You've decided to make the leap and share your research data. You might do this to improve the transparency of your study, allowing others to reproduce the work. Or you want to set up new collaborations or allow others to build further on your research, speeding up scientific discovery. You may also want to obtain credit or visibility for all the work that you put into collecting and curating the data. Or you may simply want to share your data because others require your research outputs to be made publicly available to receive funding or to be published. 
It’s the end of the first week of our inaugural Research Software Camp which is focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. We’ve been exploring the topic through a mixture of live sessions, guides on our website and discussions on social media. Here are some of the highlights from week one.
Based on the "Sustainable Software Development for Researchers" alias "Bring Your Own Script and Make It Ready for Publication" workshop, this guide is a short overview about the steps recommended to make your code sustainable, enabling others to use and modify it. 
Have you developed something useful, and want to build a community around it? Before you encourage people to find you and your project, you need to make both easily findable.
As part of the inaugural SSI Research Software Camp on research accessibility, we’ve gathered some useful resources. Research accessibility is a broad topic and this list gives a taster of the different areas.
The Software Sustainability Institute's inaugural Research Software Camp is underway, starting with a keynote talk on the Social Model of Inaccessibility.
