Hi all,

Apologies for posting this to the list, but since ESPResSo is featured rather prominently in said manuscript, I thought it might be useful if any of the core developers could fill out this survey.

Also, any input from other software projects that you might be working on will be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi everyone,

My name is Derek Groen. I was an SSI Fellow in 2014 and I am these days
a Lecturer in Computer Science at Brunel University London (and a
visiting one at UCL). An MSc student of mine (Henry Nnamuka, CCd here)
is doing a survey on Research Software Engineering, trying to figure out
which software development practices are widely applied by researchers.

This work is part of a follow-up of the paper on research software
development practices that I worked on with several others during the
first SSI Paper Hackathon (see: From
reviewers we received frequent feedback that they would like to see more
quantitative data regarding the adoption of software development
practices amongst researchers. This survey is a first step towards a
follow-up paper that will cover that :).

The survey has less than 10 multiple choice questions and contains one
open question. Would any of you be willing to fill it in by any chance?
It will help my student greatly to discover some key underlying trends,
and for us all to learn more about what techniques are used by
researchers to do software development.

The survey can be found at:

And if you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to
drop either me or Henry a line.
