This report describes the Birds of a Feather (BOF) session at the eResearch Australasia Conference 2021, titled Data is Only Half the Battle, hosted on October 14, 2021. The first objective of the BOF was to collect and communicate relevant guidance, policy and other materials around digital objects different from data, particularly for research software. The second aim was to identify champions to form a Task Force to socialise existing resources and guidance via Australian Research institutions.
First, the report records the pre-work coordinated by the organisers leading to the event. Then, it summarises the discussions and shared resources to support research software authors.
