By: Alex Ball

The International Journal of Digital Curation, Volume 9, Issue 1 is now available. It contains 5 peer-reviewed papers and 16 general articles based on papers presented at the 9th International Digital Curation Conference in February 2014. There are also one new peer-reviewed paper and two new general articles.

The new contributions focus on disciplinary data, with one looking at suitable controlled vocabularies and the others at building specialist digital collections.

The papers and articles derived from the conference cover a wide range of topics. Institutions around the world share their experiences of setting up institutional infrastructure and training to support research data management. There are ideas for driving up the quality and integrability of research data, both in general and specifically in Citizen Science projects. There is a technique for managing the disclosure risk for sensitive data, and proposals for supplementing data management plans with risk and process management plans. There are new ideas, tools and emerging best practice from the area of data publishing, and even a proposal to fix the mapping between persistent identifiers and web addresses.

For a more detailed overview of the papers in this issue, and for news of how the journal itself is evolving, please read Alex Ball's editorial.
