Turning ripples into waves

Minting DOIs for research software

I have been a little busy this past week. That is why this is a very short post, just to keep track of what I have been doing lately.

Zenodo and GitHub joined forces to create an easy way to make citable-code. You can generate a DOI with just 4 clicks:

  • Sign-in with you GitHub account.
  • "Turn on" zenodo for your software repository.
  • Create a software release for that repository.
  • Go back to zenodo and edit your DOI info.

That's it! There is even a badge for READMEs and webpages. I already minted new releases of all my repositories and added DOIs to them. Check it out:

Next time you use any of these packages for your research, be sure to use the DOI and make your research more reproducible.
