OSI Welcomes the Journal of Open Source Software as Affiliate Member

Open Source Initiative Extends Support for Computational Science and Engineering Research and Researchers.

PALO ALTO, Calif. - March 28, 2017 -- The Open Source Initiative® (OSI), a global non-profit organization formed to educate about and advocate for the benefits of open source software and communities, announced that the Journal Of Open Source Software (JOSS), a peer-reviewed journal for open source research software packages, is now an OSI affiliate member.

First, and most pressing for us today, we’re not there yet in our fund raising goals for 2016, and we’re asking those working with open source software—those who not only understand the technical merits, but value open principles—to contribute and help fund our ongoing work.
