Abstract

Research software – specialist software used to support or undertake research – is of huge importance to researchers and contributes to significant advances in the wider world and requires collaboration between people with diverse skills and backgrounds. Analysis of recent survey data provides evidence for a lack of diversity in the Research Soft- ware Engineer community. We identify interventions which could address challenges in the wider research software community and areas where the community is becoming more diverse. There are also lessons applicable to the wider software development field around recruitment from other disciplines and the importance of welcoming communities.
