DataCite Summer Meeting 2010: The international consortium invites to its first workshop29.04.2010 - (idw) Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover
DataCite, the international consortium for the citation of research data invites together with the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) to its first summer meeting from June 7th to 8th 2010 in Hannover, Germany.
DataCite was founded in December 2009 and its objectives are to make it easier for scientists to access research data over the Internet, to increase acceptance of research data as quotable scientific objects in themselves and thus to ensure that the rules of good scientific practice continue to be adhered to.
The scope of the event is to provide a forum to data centres to exchange experience, workflows and standards for the handling of research data. Under the theme Making datasets visible and accessible, experts will discuss the following topics:
- Metadata for datasets: More than pure citation information?
- Peer-review systems and the publication of data sets: Ensuring quality
- Trustworthiness of data centres: A technological, a structural and a legal discussion
- Best-practise and examples: What can be done and is done worldwide?
- Visualisation of datasets: More than meets the eye
- Datasets and scholarly journals: A perfect combination?
The full programme and additional information on the venue and registration can be found on the website http://www.datacite.org.
DataCite has 12 members from 9 countries: The British Library, the French LInstitut de lInformation Scientifique et Technique (INIST), the Technical Information Center of Denmark, the library of the TU Delft from the Netherlands, the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), the California Digital Library (USA), the Purdue University (USA), the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), the German National Library of Medicine (ZB MED), the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), GESIS- Leibniz Institute of Social Sciences and the library of the ETH Zurich in Switzerland.
DataCite is following the example of the successful work by the TIB as the world's first DOI-registration agency for research data. Since 2005 the TIB has already registered around 700,000 research data objects with a DOI name making the data easier to access and at the same time rendering them quotable. DataCite is an
official DOI registration agency and a member of the International DOI Foundation (IDF). The DataCite office is managed by the TIB in Hannover.
The TIB is the German National Library for all areas of engineering as well as architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. It is the largest library in the world in its areas.
