This is the TU Delft Research Software Policy approved by the Executive Board of TU Delft on 16 February 2021.
The TU Delft Research Software Policy:
facilitates best-practices on research software management and sharing, irrespective of whether the code is proprietary or open source.
emphasises the value of research software as a standalone research output and facilitates proper recognition of the contribution of TU Delft researchers to software.
sets out some high-level requirements for how software should be managed, the responsibilities of the different stakeholders involved in software development and describes the global workflows that facilitate sharing software openly.
This policy is accompanied by the document “TU Delft Guidelines on Research Software: Licensing, Registration and Commercialisation” (http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4629635). The guidelines provide a more detailed description of the workflows involved when sharing software under an open or proprietary licence, elaborate on relevant considerations and provide additional references.
