This group builds on the previous Software Citation Working Group, which developed and publicized an initial set of software citation principles (https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj-cs.86). The activities of the Software Citation Implementation Working Group are: work with relevant stakeholders (publishers, librarians, archivists, funders, repository developers, other community forums with related working groups, etc.) to:
- endorse the principles
- develop sets of guidelines for implementing the principles
- help implement the principles
- test specific implementations of the principles. During this process, the principles may also be updated based on feedback from the activities.
The group does much of its work via GitHub: https://github.com/force11/force11-sciwg
