Professor Ricardo Reis posted a note, in the Brazilian Computer Society e-mail list, regarding the issue of citation counting. He cited the paper "Show me the Data" published by the Journal of Cell Biology, as a must read for those interested in the politics of research dissemination.
The article, "Show me the data", is an excellent example of the clamor for transparency.
As I have being saying: software transparency is a key issue for society.
I gave a talk at the IFIP 2.9 addressing this issue. It already shows progress on our research on software transparency.
