Building Collaborative Bridges: Opportunities and Challenges for Data Sharing and Citation
Several key themes have emerged that begin to define a path towards functional infrastructure. A central theme is the broad and careful use of persistent identifiers (PIDs) for data, documents, data types, instruments, people, etc., so that computers can unambiguously identify and locate key resources and their descriptions. One particular use of identifiers is in data citation and referencing. Pulling from examples within the research data management community, this webinar will discuss data citation infrastructures, solutions, and challenges. We will talk about social and technological bridges that enable and support open data sharing, and the importance (and challenges) of capturing relationships across research and datasets.
The Research Data Alliance (http://rd-alliance.org) works to build the social and technical bridges that enable the open sharing of data. RDA is a community-driven, global member organisation working in more than 65 Working and Interest Groups to develop both the adopted socio-technical solutions and the engaged professional community necessary for a functional data sharing infrastructure.
