Data Publishing sessions at RDA 3rd Plenary

Dear Colleagues,

Do you want to learn about current strategies in data publishing and what should come next?

During the RDA Plenary meeting in Dublin, we—the RDA-WDS Publishing Data Interest Group—will organize several complementary sessions on data publishing covering aspects like costs, services, workflows, and bibliometrics, which will focus on research data as part of scholarly communication.

If you are interested to discuss lessons learned from other disciplines, journals, repositories, and others, and if you want to contribute to paving the way ahead, you might be interested to join us and give feedback on our ongoing work. We are a very diverse group representing publishers, data centres, librarians, funders and researchers from many disciplines who are studying the current state of art in data publishing, e.g. collecting examples of data journals and peer review, data citation or metrics covering datasets.

Dear Mark,
Dear RDA-WDS Publishing Data IG Members,

On behalf of the Co-chairs of the RDA-WDS Publishing Data IG and Chairs and Co-chairs of the proposed Working Groups and all the individual Members who contributed to this work, please find attached the following 5 documents for your considerations and comments:

RDA/WDS Publishing Data IG breakout programme

Research Data Alliance 2nd Plenary

Tuesday, 17 September 2013

14:00-18:15 Salon B, Marriott Hotel, Washington DC


14:00-14:30 RDA/WDS Publishing Data Interest Group
Co-chairs: Michael Diepenbroek, Jonathan Tedds

The Publishing Data Interest Group brings together all stakeholders involved in publishing research data including researchers, discipline specific and institutional data repositories, academic publishers, funders and service providers. Every effort will be made to get a good representation from related international programmes, their working groups and other private or institutional activities involved in this area. We will build on existing resources, reports and other shared experiences from the different stakeholders and will nurture more specific and targeted working groups addressing practical aspects in publishing research data.

As such, the Publishing Data Interest Group can be regarded as a broad and inclusive forum for interested individuals to contribute to and test, validate and promote the findings of the Working Groups. In particular we plan to address the implementation of workflows for publishing data and therefore help establish appropriate supporting infrastructure including bibliometrics, costings and other relevant services.

This session will update participants on the work to date through the joint RDA-WDS Working Groups proposed and invite further expressions of interest in these or other areas of common interest.
