    "Sharing Research Data and Intellectual Property Law: A Primer"

    Posted in Copyright, Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on September 2nd, 2015

    Michael W. Carroll has published "Sharing Research Data and Intellectual Property Law: A Primer" in PLOS Biology.

    Here's an excerpt:

    Sharing research data by depositing it in connection with a published article or otherwise making data publicly available sometimes raises intellectual property questions in the minds of depositing researchers, their employers, their funders, and other researchers who seek to reuse research data. In this context or in the drafting of data management plans, common questions are (1) what are the legal rights in data; (2) who has these rights; and (3) how does one with these rights use them to share data in a way that permits or encourages productive downstream uses? Leaving to the side privacy and national security laws that regulate sharing certain types of data, this Perspective explains how to work through the general intellectual property and contractual issues for all research data.

              "Open Access to a High-Quality, Impartial, Point-of-Care Medical Summary Would Save Lives: Why Does It Not Exist?"

              Posted in Open Access, Open Science, Publishing on September 1st, 2015

              James Heilman has published "Open Access to a High-Quality, Impartial, Point-of-Care Medical Summary Would Save Lives: Why Does It Not Exist?" in PLOS Medicine.

              Here's an excerpt:

              Summary Points

              • Currently no open access point-of-care (POC) medical summary aimed at a professional audience exists.
              • Some nonprofit and multiple professional, for-profit POC medical summaries are frequently accessed by clinicians and policymakers.
              • Efforts to create open access POC summaries have been stymied by the difficulty of attracting high-quality contributors.
              • The open access medical publishing community can create this resource with engaged donors, crowd-sourcing, and technology.

                  Research Data Management: A Primer Publication of the National Information Standards Organization

                  Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on September 1st, 2015

                  NISO has released Research Data Management: A Primer Publication of the National Information Standards Organization.

                  Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

                  The primer on Research Data Management provides an overview of how data management has changed in recent years, and outlines best practices for the collection, documentation, and preservation of research data. The importance of creating a data management plan (DMP) before beginning a research data project is emphasized. Crucial questions regarding how the data will be managed are answered ahead of time in a DMP, thus making it easier for the researcher to collect and document the data properly for future use and reuse. Creating research data that is easily reproducible and transparent is the ultimate goal, and following the guidelines in this primer can help educate researchers to ensure their data is available for others. The differences between publishing papers and publishing datasets and the citation challenges the data community are working on solving are also discussed.

                        "Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing"

                        Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing on August 31st, 2015

                        Mercè Crosas has self-archived "Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing."

                        Here's an excerpt:

                        The research community needs reliable, standard ways to make the data produced by scientific research available to the community, while getting credit as data authors. As a result, a new form of scholarly publication is emerging: data publishing. Data pubishing—or making data long-term accessible, reusable and citable—is more involved than simply providing a link to a data file or posting the data to the researchers web site. In this paper, we define what is needed for proper data publishing and describe how the open-source Dataverse software helps define, enable and enhance data publishing for all.
