WGs Wrapping up (from ~12 months after RDA endorsement)
 

Research data is increasingly recognized as an important output of scholarly research, however, there are not yet standardized or comprehensive research data metrics as there are with articles. While data citations standards are being constructed and gaining user adoption, there are not yet usage (views, downloads) metrics for data. In addition, data citations are currently not yet counted and aggregated into clear metrics, as it is done for articles.

 

The “Make Data Count” project hosted a Birds of a Feather at RDA Plenary 10 and recognized that many other groups are working in this space and interested in implementing a standardized set of data usage metrics. Lending expertise from various projects and research stakeholders, this WG, a part of the Publishing Data IG, aims to harness community buy-in of data usage metrics and drive widespread adoption.

 

The WG intends to be be broadly international in scope, and will actively recruit participants from all regions globally, including international initiatives (e.g.,. ANDS) and will be directing outreach globally through webinars, related conferences, and consistent communication. The WG recognizes that for data usage metrics to be adopted at a global scale, representatives from all global regions need to help shape the WG outcomes.
