    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;In this article, we attempt to answer the question of how reproducible research software should be by defining four levels of reproducibility, suggesting criteria to help you decide which level your research software should be at, and recommending practices to reach these levels of reproducibility. The article is the result of a discussion session at the Software Sustainability Institute Fellows Online Selection Day 2021.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
