The first four workshops in the DataCite series looked in detail at some of the key elements of data citation using DOIs.

This fifth workshop will take a more holistic view of citation in the context of the day-to-day work of the repository and consider what practical measures are needed to overcome the barriers - whether financial, technical or cultural - to the adoption of DOIs (or other identifiers) for data

Research data in the advance of education, research and innovation

Data collation, analysis and distribution are functions integral to digital scholarship and increasingly shape our data management and curation activities. Data infrastructures for advanced education, research and innovation are defined across a broad spectrum, ranging from virtual worlds and online gaming to laboratory instrumentation and large scale earth observations.

iPRES, the major international conference on digital preservation, will be held at the Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal, from 2-5 September 2013. The conference invites original contributions addressing a wide range digital preservation challenges.

Papers, posters and demonstrations, panels, and workshops topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

The main theme of the 17th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB) will be extracting and processing data from the vast wealth of digital publishing and the ways to use and reuse this information in innovative social contexts in a sustainable way. 

Open Access Research Data without Barriers

As “big data” emerges as an international priority, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a newly formed organization whose goal is to accelerate data-driven innovation world-wide through research data sharing and exchange.

GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences is proud to host the IASSIST 2013 Conference at Maternushaus in Cologne, Germany. 

The theme of this year's conference is Data Innovation: Increasing Accessibility, Visibility and Sustainability.

This theme reflects recent efforts across the globe by the largest government agencies down to the smaller independent research units to make data (be it survey, administrative, geospatial, or scientific) more open, accessible and understandable for all.

The DigCurV project is delighted to announce 'Framing the digital curation curriculum' conference. 

With the development of an advanced knowledge-based society, digital curation is becoming a central challenge and activity for libraries, archives, museums and other cultural organizations. The need for skilled professionals to manage digital collections is evident in Europe and internationally, yet there are limited numbers of institutions currently offering professional training and education programmes to prepare individuals to work in the field.

The fourth in the series of JISC-British Library DataCite Workshops will take place in the British Library Centre for Conservation (Foyle Suite).

About the Workshop

Deciding what constitutes a clearly-defined - and therefore citable - digital object is a key challenge in research data management. The challenge is even greater when the data in question is dynamic (in the case of longitudinal data, for example) or structurally complex (such as data comprised of multiple sub-datasets).

Monica Duke delivered a tutorial prepared together with Alex Ball at iPres 2012 in Toronto.

This is the third in the series of JISC-British Library DataCite Workshops, focusing on managing and citing sensitive data.

About the Workshop

The workshop will look at the challenges of managing sensitive or personal data within the repository context and will hear from speakers who have practical experience of handling data which, for reasons of commercial sensitivity, data protection or research ethics, cannot be made fully publicly accessible.
