I have previously written a little about the importance of clean, publicly available data sets for statistics research, and collected some links related to data repositories and outlets for publishing data.
Software is another high-value, labor-intensive output of research that lacks recognition in the traditional academic publication paradigm. Where can one publish papers that explain and demonstrate software?
Frontiers in Applied Mathematics and Statistics has a "technology report" publication type that can be used for software papers.
Neurocomputing now has a publication category called original software publications. It is possible other Elsevier journals may follow suit in the future. Of course, there are other reasons to avoid Elsevier journals.
