Fixing Code Review
Here’s an idea where we don’t need to tweak anything we can use what we already have:
You write your notification to your journal of interest , and that notification/article is about the interpretation of the analysis its about the biology and has a brief blurb about the softwares functionality. The editors/reviewers then review the paper with no regard for the software and wait on the software vetting, probably with a response of accepted with software review or rejected w/o code review.
Simultaneously you submit to a journal like Open research software, and they vet the software with their peer review network. They also provide you with a doi and citation for the software. That information is passed on to the bio journal editor with the updated journal article.
