How to properly attribute and cite software?

The CIG community has been researching ways to attribute scientific software to its creators and ways to cite software, through an EAGER project, Software Attribution for Geodynamics Applications (SAGA).

On October 30, together with the UC Davis Innovating Communication in Scholarship project, we co-hosted a one-day workshop featuring speakers from industry, publishers, scientists, the CIG community, and more, to look at the issue.

The event was webcast and will be made available online shortly. In the meantime, if you’re interested in how this looked to the online community, UC Davis evolutionary biologist and open science advocate Jonathan Eisen has storified the workshop, using its twitter hashtag #SoftCiteUCD.
