Learn how DataCite supports more than just data citation in today’s interview with Matt Buys, Helena Cousijn, and Paul Vierkant
In the second of two posts on persistent identifiers in scholarly communications, Phill Jones and Alice Meadows share information about a new cost-benefit analysis showing the value of widespread PID adoption
Whether or not you attended this year’s 24-hour online party for persistent identifiers, aka PIDapalooza 2021, here’s your chance to read all about it!
Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are an essential part of the open research infrastructure, but need widespread adoption to be effective. Learn about Jisc’s plans to increase adoption through a national PID consortium in this post by Alice Meadows.
What is the Research Organization Registry (ROR) and why do we need it? Learn more from the team behind it (CDL, Crossref, DataCite, and Digital Science) in this interview with Alice Meadows.
The third PIDapalooza took place in Dublin in late January. Alice Meadows shares some of her thoughts on this festival of open identifiers.
Today’s guest post on the importance of ensuring widespread community commitment to data citation is by Brooks Hanson, Daniella Lowenberg, Patricia Cruse, and Helena Cousijn
Think persistent identifiers are a bit boring? Think again! PIDapalooza, the first open festival of persistent identifiers, aims to challenge that view. Find out more, including how you can get involved.
As communications in science begin to incorporate data elements more routinely, the standards for describing these, versioning these, and preserving these have to be considered. And we will all have to learn how to use data labeling processes correctly.
The era of Big Data raises many questions about why and how data should or can be preserved, who should lead the effort, and what the cost-benefit equation currently is.
