As the complexity of scientific software increases, scientists are often expected to be experts in their own domain as well as in the construction and maintenance of their software. In order to support this paradigm, a number of different specialized approaches have emerged. Our work seeks to characterize the underlying motivational factors that drive scientific software development practices in a variety of scenarios. Using these insights, we are developing a hybrid scientific software process improvement framework (SciSPIF) to support the decision making process of scientific software developers. In this article, we report on the strategy for designing and building SciSPIF and our preliminary insights.
