  • 9. Software Curation: Current Work Research Questions 1. How are researchers using software? 2. How do researchers share their software? 3. What do researchers value about their software? Areas of interest 1. Software and reproducible research practices 2. Metrics for software
  • 10. Software Curation: Current Work Background 1. Increasing agreement that software and research-related code are important scholarly products 2. Research into how research software is mentioned, cited 3. Surveys into practices and perceptions around other research products (e.g. Data)
  • 11. Software Curation: Current Work Survey Design 1. Goal was to capture as broad a view of researcher practices and perceptions as possible. 2. 56 questions a. 53 Multiple Choice b. 3 Open Response
  • 14. Software Curation: Current Work Distribution 1. Approved by UC Berkeley IRB 2. Distributed via Qualtrics Inclusion Criteria 1. Participant had to consent, be over the age of 18, and say that they use software during the course of their research 2. Participant had to complete at least the demographic section.

  • 22. Coding Languages and Purpose 55.7% of researchers selected all the five purposes 86.4% of all languages
  • 24. Most of the time, researcher share source code via emails In what format do you typically share your code? How do you share your code?
  • 25. 25 Some reasons: ● “Not elegant” ● “Licensing issues” ● “Time pressure, time it takes to tidy up and document code” ● “require 'cleanup' and better commenting”
  • 27. CS researchers tend to provide information about dependencies more than other disciplines do you share related files (e.g. datasets) with your code? do you provide information about dependencies?
  • 29. 76.2% of researchers uses Github for preserving their codes Where do you save your code or software so that it is preserved over the long term? How long do you typically save your code or software?
  • 30. How do you use software or code in your research? “Software is the main driver of my research and development program. I use it for everything from exploratory data analysis, to writing papers. Most of my research activities include the writing of code specifically aimed at the implementation of particular analytic methods.” “I use code to document in a reproducible manner all steps of data analysis, from collecting data from where they are stored (databases, spreadsheets, plain text files, etc.) to preparing the final reports (i.e. a set of scripts can fully reproduce a report or manuscript given the raw data, with little human intervention).” 30
  • 31. How do you define “sharing” and “preserving”? “I think of sharing code as making it publicly accessible, but not necessarily advertising it. I think of preserving code as depositing it somewhere remotely, where I can't accidentally delete it. I realize that GitHub should not be the end goal of code preservation, but as of yet I have not taken steps to preserve my code anywhere more permanently than GitHub.” “..."Sharing", to me, means that somebody else can discover and obtain the code, probably (but not necessarily) along with sufficient documentation to use it themselves. "Preserve" has stronger connotations. It implies a higher degree of documentation, both about the software itself, but also its history, requirements, dependencies, etc., and also feels more "official"- so my university's data repository feels more "preserve"-ish than my group's Github page.” 31
  • 32. Conclusion ● Researchers consider software to be as important as data ● Most researchers do differentiate sharing from preservation, but they need tools and guidance on how to preserve their code ● Time and licenses are the main constraints of sharing software
