Science Toolbox (software is a primary research output)

Idea: 
Science Toolbox will scan millions of open access publications and various other sources to gather stats about scientific software. This will: 1. highlight high quality software for researchers to use 2. help developers of scientific software to evaluate and prove the impact that their software is having This will bring the much needed recognition to software developers, which will help them get funding for software, thus bringing more people/resources to the field of scientific software, which will result in better software, thus closing the loop.
