Harvard University will use a National Forum grant to advance work that ensures software citation supports authors, preservationists, and users alike. While software is essential to scholarly research, it is frequently uncited, resulting in situations where software is difficult to find, access, and build upon in the future. The project team will plan and hold a workshop with participants representing many forms of labor and expertise to discuss the barriers to properly citing software and will develop a specific plan of action to address software citation implementation to all relevant communities.
