The authors introduce The Journal of Open Source Software (JOSS), a publication that focuses on research software and its place in the scholarly publishing ecosystem. JOSSs goal is to make it easy for authors to publish a paper about their software, mostly focused on the software itself, and then be credited when this software is used based on users citing the JOSS paper.
