In drafting a PeerJ CS preprint, I've encountered some unknowns. My paper is specifically about introducing a new software tool.
Are screenshots of the software acceptable in the paper? Sometimes, these are the easiest way to illustrate the layout and features of design/implementation. For example, my paper has four subsections, and each one is a subpanel in the main view of my software's interface.
Is there a specific format or section where one would put metadata like where the software is hosted (eg github), where it's archived (eg zenado), what it's dependencies are, which programming language it's written in etc...? I know that, for example, the Journal of Open Research Software has a template that incorporates these facets as requirements. I'm not sure how best to emulate this in PeerJ CS.
