_Software Citation_

The aim is to collaboratively write an Open SciFi short story about what an ideal technology scenario would be for citing sources, especially software citation.

The story will be set ten years into the future, in 2028, at the time of a global disaster, an epidemic. What is thought to be the Ebola Virus Disease has broken out globally and scientist are rushing to find a cure or stem the outbreak.

What would be the impact that if since 2024 there had been fully automated knowledge systems where any ‘digital object’ in all Research Information Systems could be retrieved and seamlessly combined in real-time — by anyone, anywhere, and for free.
