RDA/WDS Publishing Data Workflows WG Recommendations

By Suenje Dallmeier-Tiessen

Workflows that enable persistence, quality control and access are all crucial to enhance the possibilities for greater discoverability as well as efficient and reliable reuse of research data. Such workflows for data publishing are at the core of this analysis and working group.


An open, universal literature-data cross-linking service - RDA/WDS Publishing Data Services WG Recommendations

By Hylke Koers

The ICSU-WDS & RDA Publishing Data Services group proposes an approach to sharing information about the links between the literature and research data. A set of hubs will collect literature­data (as well as data­data) links from their natural communities using minor extensions to existing local procedures and, in some cases, inference. The hubs agree on an interoperability framework with a common information model and open exchange methods, optimised for exchanging information among the hubs. The hubs will serve as an enabling global information infrastructure for the development of (third party) services.

The Recommendation is also published at the following DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15497/RDA00002

Relevant to this recommendation is also the release of the Scholix framework by ICSU-WDS and RDA, details can be found here: https://rd-alliance.org/rda-and-icsu-wds-announce-scholix-framework-link...


Repository Audit and Certification DSA–WDS Partnership WG Recommendations

By Rorie Edmunds

The Catalogue of Common Procedures was developed by the DSA–WDS Partnership Working Group on Repository Audit and Certification, a Working Group (WG) of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) . The goal of the effort was to create a set of harmonized Common Procedures for certification of repositories at the basic level, drawing from the procedures already put in place by the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU­-WDS). These procedures are intended to support the implementation of the Catalogue of Common Requirements developed by the WG to harmonize the certification criteria previously established by the DSA and ICSU ­WDS.
