Researchers can now easily cite the software they use with GitHub’s new built-in citation support, giving proper credit and recognition to those who develop research software.

Researchers can now get the recommended citation for software on GitHub, through its support for the Citation File Format (CFF). If a code repository contains a CITATION.cff file, GitHub will provide the citation ready to use in a publication. Two other tools have announced support for CITATION.cff files: Zenodo will import the information automatically for a software release, and Zotero will add the software citation to a researcher’s reference collection.
