Software Archiving and Sharing

In addition to services around data, JHUDMS is in the process of extending services (consulting, training, archiving) to include the treatment of software as a first-class research product. The objectives are to enhance research reproducibility and reuse by providing

  • guidance to researchers at the research planning stage in thinking of how code might be managed and what will happen to it at the end of the project,
  • tips on how to cite code for credit,
  • best practices to make software curation-ready, and
  • guidance on preserving the software components of the research process (e.g., by archiving in the JHU Data Archive or elsewhere).
