Link your figshare and ImpactStory accounts

Link your figshare and ImpactStory accounts | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

We’re big fans of figshare at ImpactStory: it’s one of a growing number of great ways to get research data into the open, where others can build on it.

So we’re excited today to announce figshare account integration in ImpactStory! All you have to do is paste in a figshare account URL; then, in the background, we gather your figshare datasets and report their views, downloads, tweets, and more.

Digital research tools provides nice help in the workday of researchers. But a great improvement is obtained by linking tools  features  to optimize our time. figshare and ImpactStory are going in this way by linking your accounts. You have then an access to precise statistics on your figshare datasets!

Scientific Data to complement and promote public data repositories

Scientific Data to complement and promote public data repositories | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Scientific Data will be a forum for publications about datasets, but will not be a repository for primary datasets. Primary data associated with Data Descriptors will be stored in one or more external data repositories. Why this distinction?

 

This strategy helps us draw some clear lines around the goals of Scientific Data.  By ensuring that the primary datasets are stored in external systems, we make it crystal clear that our goal is to help authors publish content that promotes the scientific value and reusability of their datasets, not to control access to data. We feel that this is a progressive strategy that will help promote collaboration and data consolidation, rather than fragmentation.

Scientific Data is provinding further information about data storage on this platforms available next year. Indeed, their concept of direct storage has evolved to a indirect ones with a central tools: the data descriptor. Then, it will not be a dpositary structure that will provided but an evironment to seggregate publications of rich data descriptions stored in different places (journals, Dryad, figshare, and other local storage (i.e. lab and universities servers). Science Date is focus now on provinding: 

"- A publication platform for detailed methods descriptions and technical validation information

- Data search and discovery features that reach across diverse repositories

- Peer-review of data release

- The career credit that is duly associated with rigorously peer-reviewed publications"
