"Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing on August 31st, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

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.
