The IDEaS Seminar Series presents Daniel Katz
Friday, 30 March 2018
2-3 pm in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building  Room 1117-1118

Daniel Katz is the assistant director for Scientific Software and Applications at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and research associate professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Title: "Software Citation Today and Tomorrow"

Abstract: Software is increasingly important in research, and some of the scholarly communications community, for example, in FORCE11, has been pushing the concept of software citations as a method to allow software developers and maintainers to get academic credit for their work: software releases are published and assigned DOIs, and software users then cite these releases when they publish research that uses the software. This talk will discuss the state of software citation, starting with history of work done by the FORCE11 Software Citation Working Group, leading to a published set of software citation principles (https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj-cs.86), as well as other prior work. It will also talk about where the community is going, what the obstacles to progress are, and how they may be overcome.
