  • The types of data linked to include Data from ESDS/UKDA, UK government data, regional and local government data, international organisations etc.
  • Example Project 1 – DataCite Our long term vision is to support researchers by providing methods for them to locate, identify, and cite research datasets with confidence.
  • DataCite 2 We see Persistent identification as a key component for this… It allows data to be verified, discovered, accessed, reused, cited and tracked,
  • How does datacite work? 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.

    • Genetic data collected by a medical researcher.
    • A survey of public opinions collected by a sociologist.
  • The Foundation for Research
    • Data is a crucial component of the scholarly record.
    • Re-acquisition may be impossible
    • Datasets are essential to the British Library’s mission to advance the World’s knowledge.
  • The Datasets Programme
    • We envision a future where researchers can:
    • Discover, access, reuse, and reference datasets.
    • Track the impact of the data that they generate and receive appropriate credit.
    • Our approach is to:
    • Provide a focus for the community to establish needs, requirements and agreement.

    • Support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study
    • http://datacite.org/
  • A Key Component for Many Goals Make Visible Find Access Track Impact Verify Reuse Cite ? Persistent Identification
  • Connecting an Article with the Underlying Data
    • Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) 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
