  • Recognising the value of software: how libraries can help the adoption of software citation, Neil Philippe Chue Hong, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom, Jez Cope, The British Library, United Kingdom, Patricia Herterich, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom, Daniel S. Katz, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, United States, Simon Worthington, TIB - German National Library of Science and Technology, Germany

The first presentation by Barbara McGillivray, Nicolas Larrousse and Daan Broeder discusses how Data Citation and Data Publication can play a key role in a synergetic relationship between libraries and researchers and have the potential to shape new ways to conduct research in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). The presentation will further discuss how to establish a dialogue within the library community to address the intersection between Data Citation, Data Publication and Open Knowledge, exploring issues to do with how data and data publications can be made available and easily searchable in library catalogues, how librarians can act as data champions training students and researchers in best practices, and how data collections can be best curated to address the needs of SSH researchers.
The second presentation by Katie Wilson discusses the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI). This innovative research project explores and shares publicly available data, analysis, insights, and software code to expand understanding of institutional scholarly research performance and progress towards becoming Open Knowledge institutions. Building on a critique of limited bibliometric measures and underlying assumptions used by global university rankings, COKI has aggregated trillions of data points from multiple publicly available sources on more than 100 million outputs for more than 20.000 institutions. This presentation deliberates on the work of the COKI project and how collaboration with libraries can enhance institutional understanding of Open Research production, performance, and options to enric/h the implementation of Open Knowledge institutions.
Finally, the third presentation by Neil P. Chue Hong seeks to discuss the current status of software citation in the researcher and publishing communities by summarising how libraries can build on the available guidance and by showcasing existing efforts. It will also give insights into how research libraries can collaborate with research software engineering groups and research computing groups at their institutions, to provide broader support for Open Research, FAIR research objects, reproducibility, and software preservation.
