- Assistant Specialist, Research Data Management
In the role of the Research Data Management Specialist in the Office of Digital Innovation and Stewardship (ODIS), I focus on supporting academic research in the areas of data management planning, research workflows, reproducibility, data and software curation, archiving and sharing, and open science. Additionally, I'm responsible for managing the University of Arizona Research Data Repository (ReDATA). My research interests have recently revolved around software archiving and preservation in the context of research reproducibility and reuse. I've also been active in software development in academia and in industry where I've worked on projects in the areas of geographic information systems, groundwater modeling, and incident management.

Software Citation Implementation Challenges. arXiv.More infoThe main output of the FORCE11 Software Citation working group(https://www.force11.org/group/software-citation-working-group) was a paper onsoftware citation principles (https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj-cs.86) published inSeptember 2016. This paper laid out a set of six high-level principles forsoftware citation (importance, credit and attribution, unique identification,persistence, accessibility, and specificity) and discussed how they could beused to implement software citation in the scholarly community. In a series oftalks and other activities, we have promoted software citation using theseincreasingly accepted principles. At the time the initial paper was published,we also provided guidance and examples on how to make software citable, thoughwe now realize there are unresolved problems with that guidance. The purpose ofthis document is to provide an explanation of current issues impactingscholarly attribution of research software, organize updated implementationguidance, and identify where best practices and solutions are still needed.[Journal_ref: ]
