Digital Scholarship Releases Third Bibliography about Research Data: Research Data Publication and Citation Bibliography

Digital Scholarship has released its third bibliography about research data, the Research Data Publication and Citation Bibliography.

Building on the base bibliography, the Research Data Curation and Management Bibliography (over 800 works) and the Research Data Sharing and Reuse Bibliography (over 200 works), the Research Data Publication and Citation Bibliography includes over 225 selected English-language articles and books that are useful in understanding the publication and citation of research data. It also provides limited coverage of closely related topics, such as research data identifiers (e.g., DOI) and scholarly metrics. Most sources have been published from January 2009 through December 2021; however, a limited number of earlier key sources are also included. Abstracts are included in this bibliography if a work is under a Creative Commons Attribution License or under one of the Creative Commons public domain licenses.

    DigitalKoans Marked 15 Years of Publication in 2020

    On April 20, 2005, I launched DigitalKoans with this post. To date, there have been slightly over 12,100 DigitalKoans posts (about 3,600 posts of which were job ads).

    That date also marked the launch of the broader Digital Scholarship website. Given my rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis in March, no new bibliographies were published this year.

    This year also marked my thirty-first year of continuous digital publishing on the Internet. In June 1989, I launched PACS-L, a LISTSERV mailing list, and, in August 1989, I launched and began editing The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, one of the first e-journals on the Internet and the first open access journal in the field of library and information science. For more details about my publishing activities see: “A Look Back at 31 Years as an Open Access Publisher.

    The PACS-L LISTSERV List Was Established 30 Years Ago Tomorrow

    Imagine the Internet without the Web. Imagine that there is no Google or similar search engine. Imagine that the cutting edge Internet applications are e-mail, LISTSERV, FTP, and Telnet. Imagine that the "Internet" is made up of a number of different noncommercial networks, and that the connections between them are not always transparent. Imagine that Microsoft only shipped one million copies of the second version of Windows last year, and you are using MS-DOS without a graphical interface. Imagine that no established publisher has even experimented with an e-journal.

    That was the situation on June 29, 1989 when I launched PACS-L, a LISTSERV mailing list. PACS-L was one of the first library-oriented mailing lists, and it was unusual in that it had a broad subject focus (public-access computer systems in libraries). Although PACS-L's greatest contribution may have been in raising librarians' awareness of the importance and potential of the then fledgling Internet, it was also the platform on which my soon-to-follow open access journal, The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, was based.

    In Remembering PACS-L, Roy Tennant said:

    For quite a while this list was where everything new in librarianship was happening. Despite its name, topics well beyond public access computer systems were discussed and debated. It was, in a nutshell, an essential place to hear and be heard. Its like was never to be again, as since then online communication channels have burgeoned and diversified. But for a little while, at least, there was a single place to be. And it was PACS-L.

    In its heyday, it became one of the largest LISTSERV lists as Walt Crawford recounts in "Talking about Public Access—PACS-L's First Decade":

    PACS-L kept growing, reaching 4,000 subscribers in June 1992; 5,000 subscribers that December; 6,000 by April 1993; and 7,000 that October. The 8,000 mark was reached by March 1994, 9,000 by February 1995, and 10,000 by February 1996. The list itself never reached 11,000 subscribers, and by 1996 many other specialized library lists had joined the fairly general PACS-L.

    PACS-L was a collaborative effort that involved a number of staff from the University of Houston Libraries, including these list moderators:

    • Nicole Abbott
    • Amelia Abreu
    • Charles W. Bailey, Jr.
    • Marianne Stowell Bracke
    • Nancy Buchanan
    • Diane Gwamanda
    • Jill M. Hackenberg
    • Jack Hall
    • Gretchen McCord Hoffmann
    • Sara Holland
    • Rafal Kasprowski
    • Anne Mitchell
    • Joan O'Connor
    • J. Michael Thompson
    • Linda Thompson
    • Dana C. Rooks

    PACS-L ceased operation at the end of 2013.

    Research Data Curation Bibliography, Version 9 | Digital Curation and Digital Preservation Works | Open Access Works | Digital Scholarship | Digital Scholarship Sitemap

    Digital Scholarship and DigitalKoans Turn 13

    Digital Scholarship and DigitalKoans debuted on April 20, 2005. From April 2005 through December 2017, its publications and website have had over 11.3 million visitors from 234 Internet country domains and over 30.1 million page views (excluding spiders)—far exceeding my modest expectations for this small noncommercial site. Thanks for your interest.

    When I launched PACS-L (The Public-Access Computer Systems Forum) and The Public-Access Computer Systems Review in the summer of 1989, it seemed like a wild-eyed experiment in an era where online journal access typically meant paying a librarian to access a citation database on a dial-up terminal and getting a printout of the resultant references. Who was to know that it would lead to being a digital publisher for 29 years? A long, strange trip indeed.

    Although DigitalKoans has no formal publishing schedule, you may have noticed that I have been typically posting Monday through Friday for quite some time.

    As you would imagine, the weekend is not a peak period for gathering the types of news items I post. In the future, the bulk of DigitalKoans posts will be published Tuesday through Friday.

    It's been over 12 years since I established DigitalKoans and over 28 years since I established PACS-L at the University of Houston. I'm now in my late sixties and it's time to pay more attention to Yeats:

    An aged man is but a paltry thing,
    A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
    Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing

    "Singing," in this case, being spending a bit more time on digital art and other creative pursuits.

    As usual, I'll continue to notify you of any anticipated DigitalKoans publication interruptions.

    DigitalKoans Turns 12

    The first DigitalKoans post, which was about John Willinsky's book, The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship, was published twelve years ago today. It's been followed by 8,490 more posts. DigitalKoans has always been freely available and under versions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial License. It has been completely independent, and it has not sought or accepted ads, sponsorships, or any other revenue generating activities. It has primarily focused on data/digital curation issues and open access issues, but it has also announced over 2,600 digital library and library IT jobs.

    Digital Scholarship, a digital press, was established at the same time as DigitalKoans. In addition to DigitalKoans, it has published digital bibliographies/webliographies and digital books and book supplements under versions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial License and the Creative Commons Attribution License. From 2009 to 2012, it also published low-cost or minimum cost (the lowest price that CreateSpace would accept) paperback versions of its digital books for libraries or individuals who wanted a hardcopy.

    Research Data Curation Bibliography, Version 5

    Digital Scholarship has released Version 5 of the Research Data Curation Bibliography. This selective bibliography includes over 350 English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding the curation of digital research data in academic and other research institutions.

    The "digital curation" concept is still evolving. In "Digital Curation and Trusted Repositories: Steps toward Success," Christopher A. Lee and Helen R. Tibbo define digital curation as follows:

    Digital curation involves selection and appraisal by creators and archivists; evolving provision of intellectual access; redundant storage; data transformations; and, for some materials, a commitment to long-term preservation. Digital curation is stewardship that provides for the reproducibility and re-use of authentic digital data and other digital assets. Development of trustworthy and durable digital repositories; principles of sound metadata creation and capture; use of open standards for file formats and data encoding; and the promotion of information management literacy are all essential to the longevity of digital resources and the success of curation efforts.

    Most sources have been published from January 2009 through December 2014; however, a limited number of earlier key sources are also included. The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works. If such versions are unavailable, links to the publishers' descriptions are provided.

    Abstracts are included in this bibliography if a work is under a Creative Commons Attribution License (BY and national/international variations), a Creative Commons public domain dedication (CC0), or a Creative Commons Public Domain Mark and this is clearly indicated in the work (see the "Note on the Inclusion of Abstracts" for more details).
