Open software, part 2: CodeMeta
Limited Capacity filling up

While the importance of software in scholarly research and communication is increasingly recognized, there remains widespread differences on what metadata software repositories and indices should collect to support what use cases. Rather than seek a consensus standard, the CodeMeta project aims to create a *crosswalk table* that will allow both researchers and computational tools to translate between widely used existing standards including GitHub, Zenodo, FigShare, DataONE, and DataCite, among others.

In this session, we will present and seek input on a proposed crosswalk table of software metadata. We encourage anyone interested in the problems of software citation or software discovery in scholarly research to join us to discuss how the proposed crosswalk table does or does not help address the needs of their use cases, and what technical and social changes are still needed to move forward.
