Here’s a tip. When you write an article about your software, the title of which indicates that open-source is important:
but you then:
- provide almost no details in the abstract
- do not provide a link to a website or repository from which your “free” software can be obtained
- choose not to make the article open access
- and put the installation instructions in a supplementary data file which is also not open access
Don’t be surprised when no-one uses your software.
Or is the publication more important to you than the product?
