ScanR is a platform that indexes outputs from French research. It has recently started to create links between research articles and software archived in Software Heritage.
We plan to collect the metadata generated by ScanR about software origins archived in Software Heritage, as software origin metadata.
This can be done in two ways:
- [preferred] as a deposit from ScanR into SWH (like the metadata only deposit planned for HAL, see T1021)
- [fragile] as a pull operation, with SWH extracting information from the ScanR API
