Show Me the Data: Managing Data Sets for Scholarly Content


About the Webinar

This webinar examines the state of the art in linking published scholarly information - think journal articles - to the data that supports the publication. DataCite and OAI-ORE are just two of the newest models and standards that are under development and being incorporated into the newest generations of production and experimental publishing and data curation respositories.

How are commercial and non-profit publishers responding to the demand to link publications directly to data? What are the important technical developments aimed at providing seamless linkages between publications and data? What are the implications for publishers, research libraries, faculty, and researchers and their established cultures?
