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: Nanopublications for exposing experimental data in the life-sciences: a Huntingtion’s Disease case study

Data from high throughput experiments often produce far more results than can ever appear in the main text or tables of a single research article. In these cases, the majority of new associations is often archived either as supplemental information in an arbitrary format or in publisher-independent databases that can be difficult to find. These Read more about Publication: Nanopublications for exposing experimental data in the life-sciences: a Huntingtion’s Disease case study[…]

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[…]
