Software Heritage officially selected for the 5th SCOSS pledging campaign

We are excited to announce that the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) board has selected Software Heritage for its next pledging round, recognizing Software Heritage as a crucial open science infrastructure ensuring continuous access to the software code outputs generated by researchers worldwide.

We look forward to seeing SCOSS members join the newly created Archives and Libraries Interest Group (ALIG), which will serve as a forum for discussing Software Source Code preservation and exploring the possibilities offered by Software Heritage to champion best practices for research software accessibility, reusability, and reproducibility.

Who can help?

SCOSS Members, libraries, archives, institutions and research funders supporting open science can make a difference by committing to fund Software Heritage. Pledge an annual donation for three years, offering a secure financial foundation and access to the dedicated Software Heritage ALIG.

Discover the detailed pledging program in the section dedicated to the 5th pledging round on the official SCOSS website.
