A Petitition for Better Research Software

“We want a research environment in which software-reliant projects are encouraged to hire software developers, rather than having to hide these valuable staff members in anonymous postdoctoral positions. Ultimately, we want the research community to recognize software’s fundamental role in research. Everyone who signs this petition will add weight to our lobbying of research stakeholders, and will help us prove the fundamental role of software in research.”
