Happy Birthday DataCite!

An interview with Britta Dreyer on ten years of DataCite: a success story around the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) The foundation of the association DataCite celebrated it’s 10th anniversary in the beginning of December 2019, a reason to look back and peak into the future. In the interview Britta Dreyer, head of the department PID and Metadata Services at TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technilogy and DataCite Business Manager, talks about what has been achieved, the challenges of the future and the cooperation with DataCite partners Ten years of DataCite, that is a great success. But actually the history of DataCite started a little bit before. Namely in 2004 with the first registration of a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a unique and persistent digital identifier, at TIB. Tell us how it all began. Scientific research generates a gigantic and constantly growing amount of digital research data. These

ORION Project: Opening up Research in Life Sciences and Biomedicine

we ware talking with Dr Michela Bertero and Dr Luiza Bengtsson ORION is a 4-year project (from May 2017 to April 2021) which will explore how organizations in life sciences and biomedicine can open up the way they fund, organize and do research. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Science with and for Society (SWAFS) Work Programme. Nine institutions take part in ORION which is coordinated by the Centre for Genomic Regulation, Spain. We asked Dr Michela Bertero and Dr Luiza Bengtsson about the project’s goals, actions and learnings […]

Research data management: over-reliance on the lifecycle metaphor – and alternatives

A few years ago, if asked to represent data we would probably have immediately thought of the pyramid model: with data lying at the base of the pyramid and information, knowledge and wisdom laid out above it. This visualisation is based on the idea that a mass of “raw” data is the foundation from which different levels of understanding are successively refined. Another important metaphor and visualisation is the store or repository. This represents data as captured, stored, used, managed and preserved. It is based on the idea of data as static and basing services on or around it. It […]

Practice of Research Data Management: Findings from an IFLA Project on Data Curators

In a project of the IFLA section “Library Theory and Research” (LTR) the profession of data curators was analyzed. Dr Anna Maria Tammaro and Dr Krystyna Matusiak answered our interview questions to tell us about the project findings. What was the aim of the study? The project of the IFLA section Library Theory and Research (LTR), entitled “Data curator: who is s/he?”, aimed to identify the roles, responsibilities, activities, and concerns of practicing data curators around the world. The main objectives of the project were: To prepare a vocabulary (a list of terms in hierarchical structure) and possibly an ontology, […]

Interview: How Open Science is changing the Landscape of Academic Libraries

In his master thesis Dr Thomas Gerdes dealt with the topic “The Open Science Movement and its significance for the academic libraries – An Analysis of Position Papers and Development Perspectives” (link in German). The focus was on a target-actual comparison and the development perspectives for open science in academic libraries. We asked him about it. How did you proceed in your master thesis? The term “open science” sums up heterogeneous aspirations for a more open science. What open science means for academic libraries is discussed in a variety of position papers and other publications. My work compares the target […]
