CrossRef and DataCite announce new initiative to accelerate the adoption of DOIs for data publication and citation

DataCite and CrossRef have agreed to collaborate to:

- Enhance the interoperability of their respective systems in order to make it easier for publishers, data centres, libraries and third parties to integrate with the scholarly DOI ecosystem.

- Provide comprehensive support for interlinking between articles and data.

- Develop open APIs and open source tools to surface citations and other relationships between publications and data sets. 

- Integrate into their services other existing scholarly communications initiatives such as ORCID and CrossRef’s FundRef.

- Develop systems, workflows and best practices for using DOIs to reference large, highly granular and dynamic data.

With the huge increase of data in scientific research (+30% every year), the data management becomes now a critical issue and implies also more links of publications to their data. Moreover the community of researchers is going more and more in the open research process to open data and thus improve their reuse (reproducibility), citations, and sharing. 


In this area, DataCite and CrossRef manage around 75 millions DOIs that identify research objects. In order to accelerate their growth with the adoption of DOIs for data publication and citation, they decide to collaborate and improve their interoperability. Other platforms for researchers integrate DOIs:  for data management like Figshare (1 millions) and for scientific blogging like The Winnover.

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"
