Depsy – Value Software That Powers Science
Depsy helps build the software-intensive science of the future by promoting credit for software as a fundamental building block of science. Features include: 1) Credit when software is informally cited – Depsy text-mines papers to find fulltext mentions of software they use, revealing impacts invisible to citation indexes like Google Scholar; 2) Credit when software is reused -Citation is just part of the story—Depsy analyzes code from over half a million GitHub repositories to find how packages are reused by other software projects; and 3) Credit for all software’s authors – Depsy assigns fractional credit to contributors based on designated authorship, number of commits, and repo ownership—supporting a fairer, more software-native reward system.
