As part of the Passport for Open Science collection, this booklet addresses the particular challenges of opening up the source code and software produced and used in scientific research.
What legal status do source code and software have? Why and how should we make them open access? How best to structure their development and ensure permanent archiving? How should we approach promotion? This guide provides answers and tools that you will immediately be able to put into practice.
Here you will find the keys to understanding the role of software in the open science ecosystem. We hope this will encourage you to make a lasting contribution to the work of the academic community.
