  1. Past data management practices in many fields of natural science, including climate research, have focused primarily on the final research output -- the research publication -- with less attention paid to the chain of intermediate data results and…
  2. Rapid release of prepublication data has served the field of genomics well. Attendees at a workshop in Toronto recommend extending the practice to other biological data sets.
  3. International attention to scientific data continues to grow. Opportunities emerge to re-visit long-standing approaches to managing data and to critically examine new capabilities. We describe the cognitive importance of metaphor. We describe…
  4. Scientific progress is driven by the availability of information, which makes it essential that data be broadly, easily and rapidly accessible to researchers in every field. In addition to being good scientific practice, provision of supporting data…
  5. Research data sharing is one of the key challenges in the escience era. IT technologies facilitate an enhanced management and sharing of research data. It is crucial to understand the current status of research data sharing in order to facilitate…
  6. In the last decade the primary data, research is based on has become a third pillar of scientific work alongside with theoretical reasoning and experiment. Greatly increased computing power and storage, together with web services and other…
  7. This report exists to provide high-level guidance for the strategic and engineering development of Data Management and Preservation plans for 'Big Science' data. Although the report's nominal audience is therefore rather narrow, we intend the…
  8. Research libraries have sought to apply their information management expertise to the management of digital research data. This focus has been spurred in part by the policies of two major funding agencies in the United States, which require grant…
  9. Institutional repositories play a critical role in the research lifecycle. Funding agencies are increasingly seeking an improved return on their investment in research. Repositories facilitate this process by providing storage of, and access to,…
  10. Background: Scientific research in the 21st century is more data intensive and collaborative than in the past. It is important to study the data practices of researchers data accessibility, discovery, re-use, preservation and, particularly, data…
  11. Since 2005, the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) has offered a successful Digital Object Identifier (DOI) registration service for persistent identification of research data. In 2009, TIB, the British Library, the Library of…
