Publication: The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship

There is an urgent need to improve the infrastructure supporting the reuse of scholarly data. A diverse set of stakeholders—representing academia, industry, funding agencies, and scholarly publishers—have come together to design and jointly endorse a concise and measureable set of principles that we refer to as the FAIR Data Principles. The intent is that these Read more about Publication: The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship[…]

Publication: Microattribution and nanopublication as means to incentivize the placement of human genome variation data into the public domain

The advances in bioinformatics required to annotate human genomic variants and to place them in public data repositories have not kept pace with their discovery. Moreover, a law of diminishing returns has begun to operate both in terms of data publication and submission. Although the continued deposition of such data in the public domain is Read more about Publication: Microattribution and nanopublication as means to incentivize the placement of human genome variation data into the public domain[…]

Publication: The Value of Data

Data citation and the derivation of semantic constructs directly from datasets have now both found their place in scientific communication. The social challenge facing us is to maintain the value of traditional narrative publications and their relationship to the datasets they report upon while at the same time developing appropriate metrics for citation of data Read more about Publication: The Value of Data[…]
