Research Software Credit and Sustainability

An ever-increasing fraction of research is dependent on software, much of it developed in academia. But the developers are often not recognized or rewarded for their contributions in the academic systems. In addition to recognition, resources are needed to sustain research software: to continue to make it available in the future, on new platforms, meeting new needs.
