  • The approach that DataCite is taking – using DOIs - has some important social benefits. Researchers, authors, publishers are comfortable, understand, and know how to use them. They put datasets on a level playing field with articles.
  • Started in 2004 with a DFG funded project lead by TIB and including three World Data Centres (STD-DOI Scientific Technical Data with DOIs)

DataCite at APE 2011 DataCite at APE 2011 Presentation Transcript

  • DataCite – Improving Access to Research Data from the Perspective of Libraries Jan Brase, DataCite January 11th. 2011 APE 2011, Berlin
    • I
    • Data and Libraries
  • Science Paradigms
    • Thousand years ago: science was empirical
      • describing natural phenomena
    • Last few hundred years: theoretical branch
      • using models, generalizations
    • Last few decades: a computational branch
      • simulating complex phenomena
    • Today: data exploration (eScience)
      • unify theory, experiment, and simulation
    • Jim Gray , eScience Group, Microsoft Research
  • Consequences for Libraries
    • Scientific Information is more than a published article or a book
    • Libraries should open their cataolgues to this non-textual information
    • The catalogue of the future is NOT ONLY a window to the library‘s holding, but
    • A portal in a net of trusted providers of scientific content
  • Consequences for Libraries We do not have it BUT We know where you can find And here is the link to it!
  • Vision 2015
    • II
    • Examples
    • III
    • Identification and Citation
  • DOI names for Data:
    • Digital Object Identifiers (DOI names) offer a solution
    • Mostly widely used identifier for scientific articles
    • Researchers, authors, publishers know how to use them
    • Put datasets on the same playing field as articles
      • Dataset
      • Yancheva et al (2007). Analyses on sediment of Lake Maar. PANGAEA.
      • doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.587840
    • URLs are not persistent
    • (e.g. Wren JD: URL decay in MEDLINE- a 4-year follow-up study . Bioinformatics. 2008, Jun 1;24(11):1381-5).
     
  • Dataset citation using the DOI system
    • The DOI system offers an easy way to connect the article with the underlying data:
      • The dataset:
      • Storz, D et al. (2009):
      • Planktic foraminiferal flux and faunal composition of sediment trap L1_K276 in the northeastern Atlantic .
      • doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.724325
      • Is supplement to the article:
      • Storz, David; Schulz, Hartmut; Waniek, Joanna J; Schulz-Bull, Detlef; Kucera, Michal (2009): Seasonal and interannual variability of the planktic foraminiferal flux in the vicinity of the Azores Current.
      • Deep-Sea Research Part I-Oceanographic Research Papers, 56(1), 107-124,
      • doi:10.1016/j.dsr.2008.08.009

    • DataCite
  • DataCite
    • Global consortium carried by local institutions
    • focused on improving the scholarly infrastructure around datasets and other non-textual information
    • focused on working with data centres and organisations that hold data
    • Providing standards, workflows and best-practice
    • Initially, but not exclusivly based on the DOI system
    • Founded December 1st 2009 in London
  • Rapid progress builds on foundational work
      • TIB begins to issue DOI names for datasets
      • Paris Memo-randum
      • DataCite Asso-ciation founded in London
      • 7 members
      • 12 members
      • All members assigned DOIs
      • Over 800,000 items registered
      • Pilot projects with Data Centres

  • What is next?
    • Over 1,000,000 records registered with DOI names (12/10)
    • DataCite metadata kernel (t.b. published 1/11)
    • Central metadata base running (6/11)
      • Harvest point for third parties (Web of Science)
      • CrossRef cooperation for data-article look-up
    • More Cooperations with publisher to include data registration in the publication workflow (Thieme so far)
    • Cooperation with FIZ Karlsruhe to combine eSciDoc with DOI-registration interface
  • DataCite
    • DataCite supports researchers by enabling them to locate, identify, and cite research datasets with confidence
    • DataCite supports data centres by providing workflows and standards for data publication
    • DataCite supports publisher by e nabling linking from articles to the underlying data
