Abstract: Our goal is to promote scientific software into an identifiable, citable, and preservable object. We are focusing upon the needs of two of the most important roles researchers play in the scholarly ecosystem: authors of scholarly manuscripts and developers of scientific software. We are building a technical framework and promoting a set of social practices that will help to manage some of the problems associated with software citations, including software versions, release specific authorship, synonymous object identifiers, and best practices for journal citation markup.
