Researchers are not aware of the resources to cite software #14
Use Case: Researchers are not aware of the resources to cite software
Goals and Summary
A graduate student wrote a script to analyze data for a publication. They want to cite the software in the publication, but don't know where to submit the software, how to document it, or how to get a citable identifier, and how to cite the script.
Why is it important and to whom?
This is important for authors (they don't know what to do), and the publishers (if they want to promote this.)
Why hasn’t it been solved yet?
A solution may very well exist, but the problem is INFORMING the wider community of what is the best practice. (I don't know what is the best solution though.)
