Panelists will also share their own experiences around software citation followed by a discussion.


  • Learn about the work of the FORCE11 Working Group to develop best practices for authors and journals for software citation.
  • Learn about publisher and journal guidance for authors, reviewers, and editors.
  • Understand how publishers and journals can support software citation, at submission, reviewing, processing, and publication.
