Software Attribution for Geoscience Applications (SAGA)

The SAGA project brings together an interdisciplinary team from the Social, Library, and Computer Sciences to illuminate the technological and cultural barriers to effective software citation. We seek to develop a usable software tool for citation of open source software that completely describes the software environment and attribution for contributions from multiple authors.  

Survey

Thanks to the all the researchers who participated in our survey to understand current practices and barriers in software citation. Over 100 scientists completed the survey and/or participated in interviews. Results are currently being analyzed and will be discussed at our upcoming workshop (see below).

Workshop

Software for Science: Getting Credit for Code
Date: October 30, 2015
Location: MultiPurpose Room, Student Community Center, UC Davis, Davis, California
For more information, see: ICIS event

Thanks to Jonathan Eisen for Storify'ing the workshop.

#SoftCiteUCD was the #1 trending topic in Sacramento.

Saga is a narrative or legend of heroic exploits. The word is directly related to the Norse goddess Saga whose name means seeress or omniscience. She and Odin drink everyday from the stream of memory or the Well of Uror.
