    Title: Recognising the value of research software


    The ARDC has a program of activities to work towards recognition of Research Software as a first-class output of research. We want to change the prevailing culture around the invisible status of what we consider to be a valuable and uniquely actionable form of knowledge representation. In this talk, I'll cover the actions we're undertaking to make software a more visible and recognised undertaking in Research, and I'll cover what might be ways for you to make your own software more visible to the wider research sector. We'll cover different ways of publishing software, the effort around software citation, and the role of data provenance and code availability in unearthing the use of software methods and other related tools in research.


    Tom Honeyman manages a program of activities at the ARDC to work towards recognition of research software as a first-class output of research, and was the primary author of the ARDC's "National Agenda for Research Software". Prior to that Tom completed his PhD in descriptive linguistics, working on just one of the over 800 languages spoken in Papua New Guinea. While Tom spends more time these days talking about software than developing it, he has also worked as a research software engineer in the past, and also in the data archives or repositories space.
