            The Case for International Sharing of Scientific Data: A Focus on Developing Countries: Proceedings of a Symposium

            Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on December 14th, 2012

            The National Academies Press has released The Case for International Sharing of Scientific Data: A Focus on Developing Countries: Proceedings of a Symposium. (Downloading the report requires registration.)

            Here's an excerpt:

            The culture of science has been international and open for centuries. Indeed, the scientific enterprise can only work when all information is open and accessible, because science works through critical analysis and replication of results. In recent years, as some scientific data, and especially technological data, have increased in economic value frequently has caused us to be far less open with information than business and free enterprise require us to be. Indeed, the worldwide shift to what is known as open innovation is strengthening every day.

                  "Examining Attributes of Open Standard File Formats for Long-Term Preservation and Open Access"

                  Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Open Access on December 13th, 2012

                  Eun G. Park and Sam Oh have published "Examining Attributes of Open Standard File Formats for Long-Term Preservation and Open Access" in the latest issue of Information Technology and Libraries.

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  This study examines the attributes that have been used to assess file formats in literature and compiles the most frequently used attributes of file formats in order to establish open standard file format selection criteria. A comprehensive review was undertaken to identify the current knowledge regarding file format selection criteria. The findings indicate that the most common criteria can be categorized into five major groups: functionality, metadata, openness, interoperability and independence. These attributes appear to be closely related. Additional attributes include presentation, authenticity, adoption, protection, preservation, reference and others.

                      Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on December 13th, 2012

                      Andrew Sallans and Martin Donnelly have published "DMP Online and DMPTool: Different Strategies Towards a Shared Goal" in the latest issue of The International Journal of Digital Curation.

                      Here's an excerpt:

                      This paper provides a comparative discussion of the strategies employed in the UK's DMP Online tool and the US's DMPTool, both designed to provide a structured environment for research data management planning (DMP) with explicit links to funder requirements. Following the Sixth International Digital Curation Conference, held in Chicago in December 2010, a number of US institutions partnered with the Digital Curation Centre's DMP Online team to learn from their experiences while developing a US counterpart. DMPTool arrived in beta in August 2011 and released a production version in November 2011. This joint paper will compare and contrast use cases, organizational and national/cultural characteristics that have influenced the development decisions, outcomes achieved so far, and planned future developments.
