The CodeMeta initiative is a free and open-source academic collaboration creating a minimal metadata schema for research software and code.

The academic community recommends on adding a codemeta.json file in the root directory of your repository.

With this linked data metadata file, you can easily declare the authorship, include contextual information and link to other research outputs (publications, data, etc.).

Need to generate a CodeMeta compliant metadata file?

  • Include your codemeta.json at the top level of your source code tree.
