Software sustainability for open scholarship

Grant Denkinson

 The global movement towards open access has led to sharing publications with the world and increasingly sharing some research data.  For some, the method and process of research is encoded in software. How do we pass on that knowledge too?

Whether you have written a couple of lines of scripts or a few macros to make manipulate your data or whether you are part of a consortium of programmers developing a package widely used in your field you may be thinking of reusing your code in the future or sharing it with colleagues.

This session will introduce a few tips for making your software sustainable and sharable.
