Title: Software development and statistical research: Some reflections Authors:  Thomas Yee - University of Auckland (New Zealand) [presenting]
Abstract: Statisticians developing new methodology are obliged to provide software implementing the work as it facilitates its use and promotes reproducible research. However, writing good quality software takes much time, and this could be spent writing more papers. With fewer journal publications in general, academics pursuing this line of output are disadvantaged from those traditionally involved in publishing only. Some thoughts on this topic are shared. It is aimed more toward early-career researchers, however people of all ages should find something to identify with.
