Digital badges aim to clear up politics of authorship

Nature, Vol. 526, No. 7571. (28 September 2015), pp. 145-146,


Machine-readable system seeks to clearly explain who did what for a research paper. [Excerpt] An initiative that uses colourful ‘digital badges’ to denote different contributions to research aims to standardize and simplify the often-fraught business of detailing who did what on a scientific paper. [...] The 14 categories come from a related ‘digital taxonomies’ project, which last year brought together journal editors, funders and researchers to classify authors’ contributions as a set of standard roles. [...] ...


Core trustworthy data repositories requirements



The Core Trustworthy Data Repository Requirements were developed by the DSA–WDS Partnership Working Group on Repository Audit and Certification, a Working Group (WG) of the Research Data Alliance . The goal of the effort was to create a set of harmonized common requirements for certification of repositories at the core level, drawing from criteria already put in place by the Data Seal of Approval (DSA: and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS: An additional goal of the project was ...


Why linked data is not enough for scientists

Future Generation Computer Systems, Vol. 29, No. 2. (February 2013), pp. 599-611,


[Abstract] Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, does not ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attribution and methods to provide the reproducibility that enables validation of results. In this paper we make the case for a scientific data publication model on top of linked data and introduce the notion of Research ...


The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship

Scientific Data, Vol. 3 (15 March 2016), 160018,


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 may act as a guideline for those wishing to enhance the reusability of their data holdings. Distinct from peer initiatives that focus on the human scholar, ...

Open data: curation is under-resourced

Nature, Vol. 538, No. 7623. (05 October 2016), pp. 41-41,


[Excerpt] Science funders and researchers need to recognize the time, resources and effort required to curate open data [...]. There is no reliable business model to finance the curation and maintenance of data repositories. [...] Curation is not fully automated for most data types. This means that — in the life sciences, for example — many popular databases must resort to time-consuming manual curation to check data quality, reliability, provenance, format and metadata [...]. To make open data effective as a ...


Cross-domain metadata interoperability: lessons learnt in INSPIRE

In Proceedings of the International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications 2013 (2013)


Since 2007, EU Member States have been involved in creating an infrastructure for spatial information in Europe (INSPIRE), based on a legal and technical interoperability framework. This paper presents some of the lessons learnt during the implementation of this infrastructure (which started in 2009) and during work on data and service interoperability coordinated with European and international initiatives. We describe a number of critical interoperability issues affecting both scientific and government data and metadata, and propose how these problems could be ...

A new EU Forest Strategy: for forests and the forest-based sector

COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION (20 September 2013), pp. 1-17


Forests and other wooded land cover over 40 % of the EU’s land area, with a great diversity of character across regions. Afforestation and natural succession have increased the EU’s forest area by around 0.4 % per year over recent decades. Globally, however, forest area continues to decrease. Currently in the EU, only 60-70 % of the annual increment is being cut, therefore the growing stock of wood is rising. However, according to Member States’ projections under Land Use, Land-Use Change ...

Nine simple ways to make it easier to (re)use your data

Ideas in Ecology and Evolution, Vol. 6, No. 2. (2013),


Sharing data is increasingly considered to be an important part of the scientific process. Making your data publicly available allows original results to be reproduced and new analyses to be conducted. While sharing your data is the first step in allowing reuse, it is also important that the data be easy to understand and use. We describe nine simple ways to make it easy to reuse the data that you share and also make it easier to work with it yourself. ...


A survey of data provenance techniques

No. IUB-CS-TR618. (September 2005)


Data management is growing in complexity as large-scale applications take advantage of the loosely coupled resources brought together by grid middleware and by abundant storage capacity. Metadata describing the data products used in and generated by these applications is essential to disambiguate the data and enable reuse. Data provenance, one kind of metadata, pertains to the derivation history of a data product starting from its original sources. The provenance of data products generated by complex transformations such as workflows is of considerable value to scientists. From it, ...

Advancements in bioeconomy research and innovation uptake will allow Europe to improve the management of its renewable biological ...


Harmonizing National Forest Inventories

Journal of Forestry (June 2009), pp. 179-187


National forest inventories are a primary source of data for national and large area assessments of sustainability and biodiversity and for international forest resource reporting. However, the ability of countries to produce compatible estimates using these data is impeded by the diversity of their national inventory definitions, sampling designs, plot configurations, measured variables, and measurement protocols. In addition, because the differing features of these inventories have historical, commercial, and environmental justification, prospects for standardizing inventories are minimal. The best current alternative ...

On the reproducibility of science: unique identification of research resources in the biomedical literature

PeerJ, Vol. 1 (05 September 2013), e148,


Scientific reproducibility has been at the forefront of many news stories and there exist numerous initiatives to help address this problem. We posit that a contributor is simply a lack of specificity that is required to enable adequate research reproducibility. In particular, the inability to uniquely identify research resources, such as antibodies and model organisms, makes it difficult or impossible to reproduce experiments even where the science is otherwise sound. In order to better understand the magnitude of this problem, we ...


Data-sharing: everything on display

Tensions grow as data-mining discussions fall apart

Nature, Vol. 498, No. 7452. (4 June 2013), pp. 14-15,


Disagreement between scientists and publishers has grown on a thorny issue: how to make it easier for computer programs to extract facts and data from online research papers. On 22 May, researchers, librarians and others pulled out of European Commission talks on how to encourage the techniques, known as text mining and data mining. The withdrawal has effectively ended the contentious discussions, although a formal abandonment can be decided only after a commission review in July. Scientists have chafed for years at ...

Social reference: aggregating online usage of scientific literature in CiteULike for clustering academic resources

In Proceedings of the 11th annual international ACM/IEEE joint conference on Digital libraries (2011), pp. 401-402,


Citation-based methods have been widely studied and employed for clustering academic resources and mapping science. Although effective, these methods suffer from citation delay. In this study, we extend reference and citation analysis to a broader notion from social perspective. We coin the term "social reference" to refer to the references of literatures in social academic web environment. We propose clustering methods using social reference information from CiteULike. We experiment for journal clustering and author clustering using social reference and compare with ...


Applying quality assurance procedures to environmental monitoring data: a case study

Journal of Environmental Monitoring, Vol. 11, No. 4. (2009), pp. 774-781,


Managing data in the context of environmental monitoring is associated with a number of particular difficulties. These can be broadly split into issues originating from the inherent heterogeneity of the parameters sampled, problems related to the long time scale of most monitoring programmes and situations that arise when attempting to maximise cost-effectiveness. The complexity of environmental systems is reflected in the considerable effort and cost required to collect good quality data describing the influencing factors that can improve our understanding of ...


Advances in global change research require open science by individual researchers

Global Change Biology, Vol. 18, No. 7. (1 July 2012), pp. 2102-2110,


Understanding how species and ecosystems respond to climate change requires spatially and temporally rich data for a diverse set of species and habitats, combined with models that test and predict responses. Yet current study is hampered by the long-known problems of inadequate management of data and insufficient description of analytical procedures, especially in the field of ecology. Despite recent institutional incentives to share data and new data archiving infrastructure, many ecologists do not archive and publish their data and code. Given ...


Web services for forest data, analysis and monitoring: developments from EuroGEOSS

IEEE Earthzine, Vol. 5, No. 2. (2012), 389531


[Introduction] Forests play a crucial role in timber production, maintenance and development of biodiversity and in carbon sequestration and storage. However, the reliable information on forest extent, type and change, which is so important to policy makers and managers, is frequently inconsistent, incomplete and out of sync between countries and continents. In this article, we describe components developed in line with the GEOSS and INSPIRE frameworks, which access and use distributed forest information at different spatial scales, and demonstrate how these ...

Geospatial semantics: why, of what, and how?

Journal on Data Semantics III In Journal on Data Semantics III, Vol. 3534 (2005), pp. 1-24,


Why are notions like semantics and ontologies suddenly getting so much attention, within and outside geospatial information communities? The main reason lies in the componentization of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) into services, which are supposed to interoperate within and across these communities. Consequently, I look at geospatial semantics in the context of semantic interoperability. The paper clarifies the relevant notion of semantics and shows what parts of geospatial information need to receive semantic specifications in order to achieve interoperability. No attempt ...


Accessible reproducible research

Scientific publications have at least two goals: (i) to announce a result and (ii) to convince readers that the result is correct. Mathematics papers are expected to contain a proof complete enough to allow knowledgeable readers to fill in any details. Papers in experimental science should describe the results and provide a clear enough protocol to allow successful repetition and extension. [...] ...


A Map-based Web Server for the Collection and Distribution of Environmental Data

In Bridging the gap: ISPRS WG VI/3 and IV/3 Workshop, Ljubljana, February 2-5, 2000 : Collection of Abstracts (2000)


Environmental data constitute a very wide and poorly structured knowledge domain. The only characteristic that they share is to be associated to a certain geographical object, either a point, or a line, or a polygon. These geographical objects have in turn known relationships among them (e.g. inclusion, closeness). A map can thus constitute a unique way for structuring such a wide domain, thus allowing an ordered data storage and retrieval. A web server for collecting and distributing environmental data has been ...

CYC: a large-scale investment in knowledge infrastructure

Commun. ACM, Vol. 38, No. 11. (November 1995), pp. 33-38,


Since 1984, a person-century of effort has gone into building CYC, a universal schema of roughly 105 general concepts spanning human reality. Most of the time has been spent codifying knowledge about these concepts; approximately 106 commonsense axioms have been handcrafted for and entered into CYC's knowledge base, and millions more have been inferred and cached by CYC. This article examines the fundamental assumptions of doing such a large-scale project, reviews the technical lessons learned by the developers, and surveys the ...

Ontology research and development. Part 2 - a review of ontology mapping and evolving

Journal of Information Science, Vol. 28, No. 5. (01 October 2002), pp. 375-388,


This is the second of a two-part paper to review ontology research and development, in particular, ontology mapping and evolving. Ontology is defined as a formal explicit specification of a shared conceptualization. Ontology itself is not a static model so that it must have the potential to capture changes of meanings and relations. As such, mapping and evolving ontologies is part of an essential task of ontology learning and development. Ontology mapping is concerned with reusing existing ontologies, expanding and combining ...
