"Data Stewardship in the Earth Sciences"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on July 16th, 2015

Robert R. Downs et al. have published "Data Stewardship in the Earth Sciences" in D-Lib Magazine.

Here's an excerpt:

In the Earth Sciences, for the past 15+ years, the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) has been working to make Earth science data more discoverable, accessible, and usable by more people. As a part of this effort, the ESIP Data Stewardship Committee has worked on a variety of recommendations, best practices, and guidelines that have significantly moved data stewardship in the Earth sciences forward, with impacts ranging from influencing how data management is done within government agencies and by other data stewards, to providing guidelines for citation of Earth science data used by publishers in the Earth sciences. Completed and ongoing activities of the committee are described. Interested readers are invited to join our community.

            Emerald Announces Zero Embargo Trial for Library and Information Science Journals

            Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on July 15th, 2015

            Emerald has announced a zero embargo trial for library and information science journals.

            Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

            Emerald Group Publishing, global publisher linking research and practice, today announces the launch of its Green Open Access, Zero Embargo trial, applicable for all mandated articles submitted to the company's Library and Information Science (LIS) and selected Information and Knowledge Management journals.

            This change allows authors to deposit the post-print version of the article into their respective institutional repository immediately upon official publication, rather than after Emerald's 24 month embargo period for mandated articles. . . .

            The evaluation of this trial will help to inform future Emerald Open Access initiatives. Emerald will work with its Librarian Advisory Group to assess the impact of the trial, by monitoring the quality and volume of submissions, feedback from authors, and readership figures from both the Emerald platform and institutional repositories.

                      This report aims to look at what workflows are typically in place, where the gaps are, and how hosted RDM services could help fill these gaps or simplify the processes. In particular, this report aims to:

                      • Describe the workflows/processes involved when researchers and institutions use or operate RDM infrastructure (tools, services, platforms).
                      • Provide practical examples of how RDM workflows are implemented and supported at a range of UK Higher Education Institutions, including integration of systems/tools.
                      • Define/compare the strengths/weaknesses when using hosted RDM infrastructure, onsite infrastructure or a combination.
