Report on the Third Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE3)

TLDR
The report includes a description of the keynote presentation of the workshop, which served as an overview of sustainable scientific software, and summarizes a set of lightning talks in which speakers highlighted to-the-point lessons and challenges pertaining to sustaining scientific software.

ON THE THIRD WORKSHOP ON SUSTAINABLE SOFTWARE FOR SCIENCE : PRACTICE AND EXPERIENCES ( WSSSPE 3 )

TLDR
A summary of the discussions, future steps, and future organization for a set of self-organized working groups on topics including developing pathways to funding scientific software; constructing useful common metrics for crediting software stakeholders; identifying principles for sustainable software engineering design; reaching out to research software organizations around the world; and building communities for software sustainability are summarized.

Report on the Fourth Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE4)

TLDR

The State of Sustainable Research Software: Results from the Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE5.1)

TLDR
This paper uses the accepted submissions from the Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences and the speed blogs written during the event to examine the state of research software.

Improving the visibility of scholarly software work

  • Computer Science
  • 2016
TLDR
It is argued that software is so rarely visible in the scholarly literature and in the reputation systems built on that literature that the work of monitoring downstream and upstream dependencies, encouraging outside contributions, timing and managing releases is substantial.

Software citation principles

TLDR
This document summarizes the recommendations of the FORCE11 Software Citation Working Group and its activities between June 2015 and April 2016, to produce a consolidated set of citation principles that may encourage broad adoption of a consistent policy for software citation across disciplines and venues.

Software and the Scientist: Coding and Citation Practices in Geodynamics

TLDR
This work assesses the current practices of software development and attribution, as well as attitudes about the need and best practices for software citation, and analyzed publications by participants in the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics and conducted mixed method surveys of the solid earth geophysics community.

Uncertainty about the Long-Term: Digital Libraries, Astronomy Data, and Open Source Software

  • P. DarchA. Sands
  • Computer Science
    2017 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL)
  • 2017
TLDR
A qualitative case study of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), a major astronomy project that will collect and make available large-scale datasets, and benefits and burdens of this approach as a strategy for addressing uncertainty are evaluated.

Defining Sustainability through Developers' Eyes: Recommendations from an Interview Study

TLDR
Recommendations to improve sustainability are proposed, focusing in particular on community building, improving software quality and increasing motivation, and at the level of the software artefact itself, and ensuring that the functionality it represents can be re-used in some capacity in the future.

Building Sustainable Software - The CSDMS Approach

TLDR
CSDMS develops, integrates, archives and disseminates earth-system models and tools to an international community with the goal of building the set of tools necessary to model the earth system.

Role of Online Platforms, Communications and Workflows in Developing Sustainable Software for Science Communities

TLDR
In this short paper, some ideas for developing community software borne of the decade plus years experience in developing such tools for a well defined community, namely volcanologists are put forward.
