UK DataCite workshop: Glasgow

As a follow up to workshops held in London at the British Library, we have started to take DataCite on the road. On the 13 June 2014, we held a workshop at the University of Glasgow as an introduction to using DataCite for institutions in Scotland and the north of England.

This workshop also included a excellent case study from the University of Leeds, who started working with DataCite in November 2013.

Slides

Workshop no. 2: Describe, disseminate, discover: metadata for effective citation

On 6 July 2012 we brought together background to the DataCite metadata schema, and practical examples of how people are creating and using metadata about research datasets for citation and discovery. Our thanks go to Jez Cope (University of Bath) for setting up an archive of Twitter activity on the #BLDataCite hashtag for the day.

Workshop no. 3: Managing and Citing Sensitive Data

This workshop, held at the British Library on October 29th, focused on the challenges of making data that is ethically, legally or commercially sensitive available and citable.

More than 30 participants attended the event, which heard contributions from data repositories that deal with such data daily and RDM researchers who are working to improve the way we share and cite sensitive data.

Workshop no. 4: What to cite: versioning and granularity of research data for effective citation

This workshop, held at the Library on December 3rd, looked at the challenges of citing data that has various versions, granularities or other structural facets that may make citation difficult.

Slides

Mapping the data publication paradigm onto the operations of the British Oceanographic Data Centre (Roy Lowry, BODC)
The Publisher's perspective and the F1000 approach to versioning (Rebecca Lawrence, F1000 Research)

Workshop no. 5: Making citation work: practical issues for institutions

The fifth workshop in the series took a more holistic view of citation in the context of the day-to-day work of the repository, focusing on the practical measures that needed to overcome the barriers - whether financial, technical or cultural - to the adoption of DOIs (or other identifiers) for data.
