Assessing the Quality of Scientific Software [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This position paper comments on the current quality assessment practices amongst scientists writing computational software and suggests directions in research that would both increase our understanding of the difficulties involved in producing high quality computational software and provide useful advice and methodologies for the scientists. Our views are based on a series of interviews carried out at RMC and Queen's, our personal experiences in writing computational software for industry, other research at RMC and Queen's, and software related literature written by computational scientists.
