Research Software Management

In the recent years the use and development of research software by researchers has overwhelmingly increased in many scientific fields. In research fields covering computational sciences and astronomy, research software has been always the main tool to carry out data analysis and modelling often created by the researchers by themselves.  

Being an important research output, however, research software doesn’t always receive the recognition it deserves and the precautions needed to enable its long-term sustainability and maintenance are often neglected. Therefore, In order to create and maintain the quality of research software one needs to follow the best practices to achieve reproducible workflow.

Research software is defined as any piece of code or script that enables researchers to process, manipulate, generate and analyze data or automatize or test these procedures.
