Open access promises a great deal, but will your dataset be lost in cyberspace and remain unused? What are you doing to ensure discovery and utility for a range of publics? In this session you'll learn about the work done at OECD to make data both discoverable and useful to experts and lay users alike. You'll be introduced to OECD's citation tool and see some of the visualizations being developed to make data tell stories. You'll also see how OECD is presenting its datasets alongside books and journals in a single, seamless, service that is part of the global information network for researchers and students. Finally, Christmas comes early for anyone with an iPhone or iPad. Open Data? There's an OECD App for that.

Toby Green: Data, data everywhere

  1. 1. Data, Data Everywhere But not a dataset to be found! Toby Green Head of Publishing, OECD OPEN ACCESS AND OPEN DATA, Köln, December 2010
  2. 2. = ? + Search engines Data engines
  3. 3. I take as my text today . . .
  4. 4. . . . which showed how readers find journal articles . . .
  5. 5. . . . scientifically.
  6. 6. The Survey found . . . 11 different ways are used You’ve already got in hand.
  7. 7. . . . and where do you start searching? 11 different starting points Specialist bibliographic databases beat Google
  8. 8. >95% of the time
  9. 9. Discovery web
  10. 10. Discovery web As used by researchers looking for journal articles
  11. 11. = ? + Search engines Data engines
  12. 12. Discovery web Is this why Mr Smiley is so angry? He’s starting his search here, or here, or here or . . . ? Equal rights for data! NOW!
  13. 13. What does it take to make data equal?  Dataset home page with DOI  Datasets in aggregation platforms  Alerts when new data is released  More data like this!  Links from statistician’s home page  Datasets listed on sites like arXiv?  MARC records for OPACs  Datasets in A&I services  Links from statistical societies And this is a lot of work!
  14. 14. And here’s one we prepared earlier Periodicals Books Working Papers Datasets Data Tables
  15. 15. Networked ebooks and ejournals One search engine
  16. 17. And every single one with equal bibliographic status to books, journals and working papers. 710 Datasets 10,081 Tables
  17. 18. And because we’re using the same bibliographic systems . . .  Dataset home page with DOI  Datasets in IngentaConnect  Alerts when new data is released  More data from us!  Links from statistician’s home page  Datasets on Repec  MARC records for datasets  Datasets in EconLit  Links from statistical societies         
  18. 19. We don’t just channel data via OECD websites 6 million downloads from multiple channels OECD IEA PISA Datastream Bloomberg Google Public Data Apple App Store MIMAS IngentaConnect Many Eyes Strategy Analytics
  19. 20. http://statlinks.oecdcode.org/ And this is fun . . . . . . watching data downloads in real-time.
  20. 21. Thank you Inger S., Gardner T., How Readers Navigate to Scholarly Content http://www.sic.ox14.com/ A white paper describing the metadata schema used for OECD datasets and tables is available at: http://doi.org/abr www.oecd-ilibrary.org
