JOSS, the Journal of Open Source Software ( is a venue for publishing research software packages. This provides a mechanism for the large time investment required to develop open-source research software to be included within traditional systems for academic credit.

A JOSS paper is meant to be a short description of the contribution provided by the research software, with the main content being in the (archived) software repository itself.


The peer review process, run by volunteers via GitHub issues, and automated using a bot as much as possible, is designed mainly to review and improve the software itself, including documentation and tests.
