The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Scholarly Infrastructures of Research Software (SIRS)
report states that software is a necessary component of modern scholarly research and that EOSC
has a key role to play, ensuring the overall architecture will be built in a way to cater the needs of the
research community best.
The SIRS report summarised key recommendations and technical
requirements for the scholarly ecosystem to provide better functionalities and solutions for
researchers. The SIRS recommendations stand on four pillars: Archive, Reference, Describe, and
Cite research software. The SIRS report includes recommendations on archiving software artifacts,
providing or exposing extrinsic and intrinsic identifiers, describing software with metadata, producing
reliable citations, and improving the software records' curation quality across the European Open
Science community.
This report reviews existing scholarly infrastructures that cater to research software and identifies the
gaps between the EOSC Scholarly Infrastructures of Research Software (SIRS) desiderata and the
status quo based on select examples.
