Why scientific software registries and repositories are important, why we wanted to create a list of best practices for such registries and repositories, the process we followed, what the best practices include, and what the next steps for this community are.
Introducing RSE Fellow Heather Turner.
The Software Sustainability Institute is looking to recruit a researcher who is trained in and experienced in social research methods and who is interested in expanding their professional repertoire to help support computational training. 
Communities of practice (CoP) are a specific type of community focused on enabling social learning i.e. through their interactions with one another (their “practice”), members advance their knowledge and develop new skills. Understandably, these are increasingly important across the STEM ecosystem, and this post describes six key considerations for convenors or community managers looking to successfully nurture their own CoP.
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.
RSE Fellow Ed Bennett from Swansea University introduces himself and his Fellowship plans.
Nominations are open for the MRC Millennium Medal 2021 which will be presented to an exceptional researcher who has made a major contribution towards the Medical Research Council’s mission to improve health, quality of life and wealth creation. 
Do you use spreadsheets to conduct your research? Have you recently started coding or want to learn? Would you like some help from a dedicated trainer? We’d like to hear from you!
In December the SSI released the first version of our Event Organisation Guide in which we collated different experiences in running events. In this post, we talk about our five top tips, based on the guide, to organise and run a successful small event or workshop.
The Centre for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE) have published the latest batch of profiles from their Scientific Community Profiles project, featuring the SSI.
