In which journals should I publish my software? Until there is a radical change in the way that academic credit is given, the principal record of scientific research is still the peer-reviewed publication. Given that software is a fundamental part of doing science in the digital age, the question we are often asked is: where can I publish papers which are primarily focused on my scientific software? The following is a list of journals which accept submissions that are primarily about the software, and not necessarily on new algorithms or new science. There is an expectation that the use of the software will enable new research to be carried out. This list of journals is not exhaustive - if you know of others, please let us know.
