    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;Many kinds of different scientific data are being produced every day by research institutes across the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;globe. Scientists are interested in using this data, but often have difficulties when trying to obtain&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;access to data that has been created and is stored by external organizations, due to incompatible data&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;management standards. The Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, Re-usability (FAIR) principles&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;are guiding principles for scientific data management and stewardship, which have been developed to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;facilitate knowledge discovery by introducing common standards for human and machine interaction with&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;data, utilizing Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) and metadata. Several technologies and services have been&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;introduced which leverage these principles. However, all aforementioned standards, technologies, and&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;services are intended for static data and do not provide adequate support for dynamic and evolutionary&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;data, e.g. software source code, which is often managed by Version Control Systems (VCSs) such as Git&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;and Subversion. This research investigated the current approaches to managing persistently identified&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;data through VCSs and found them to be lacking in diversity of supported VCSs and persistent publishing&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;systems, and proposed a novel system which allows for direct publishing of repositories from multiple&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;VCSs to multiple, external publishing systems through a web-accessed interface. This initial idea has&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;also been published as a poster in the 2019 eScience Proceedings [1], which originated from an industry&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;problem posed by Grasple [2]. Additionally, at the end of the thesis, several assertions and conclusions&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;about the state of the art of persistent publishing of evolutionary data, most notably software source&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;code, are made which detail important problems that need additional solutions.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
