*****   Congratulations to StagLab 3.0 for minting its first DOI through Zenodo (https://zenodo.org/ <https://zenodo.org/>)  *****

Authored by Fabio Crameri (University of Oslo), StagLab (www.fabiocrameri.ch/software <http://www.fabiocrameri.ch/software>) is a software package that incorporates an extensive suite of fully-automated Geodynamic diagnostics and, crucially, applies state-of-the-art, scientific visualisation to produce publication-ready figures and movies, all in a blink of an eye, all fully reproducible. Indeed, StagLab is the first fully scientific visualisation software as it uses only perceptually uniform colour maps (from www.fabiocrameri.ch/visualisation <http://www.fabiocrameri.ch/visualisation>) to prevent significant visual errors that would otherwise distort the underlying data and mislead the reader. StagLab, a simple, flexible, efficient and reliable tool, is written in MatLab and adjustable for use with Geodynamic mantle-convection codes. StagLab can be found as part of the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics zenodo community: https://zenodo.org/communities/geodynamics/?page=1&size=20 <https://zenodo.org/communities/geodynamics/?page=1&size=20>

Looking for a repository for your software or data?  zenodo is an OpenAIRE project sponsored by the EC. They are a free repository which accepts all types of research artifacts with a record size limit of 50gb.  zenodo supports git integration which will create a new zenodo entry with your git release.  See CIG’s best practices to get started: https://github.com/geodynamics/best_practices/blob/master/ZenodoBestPractices.md <https://github.com/geodynamics/best_practices/blob/master/ZenodoBestPractices.md>.  

CIG also maintains a zenodo community.  This community is intended for use for codes in the CIG repository, their associated research products and other domain relevant research products from the geodynamics community.  Just choose the “Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics” community when creating a zenodo entry and increase the discoverability of your research.

Remember, whether you are using zenodo for a repository or not,  obtain a unique identifier such as a DOI. DOIs promote citation, are machine readable, persistent, resolvable and widely recognized. DOI’s for CIG codes can be found on their respective software landing pages.  Full citation information for your publications can be found on our website: Software > Citation <https://geodynamics.org/cig/abc>
