Making Research Data Accessible Suggestions from the Scientific Community

Confronted with unacceptable data quality problems, many scientists refuse to work further with recycled numbers. The value of data lies in their usefulness (ICSU-CODATA), but their use is only possible, when the data are easily accessible. Technical and organisational consequences arising from the restraints described above necessitate improvements in the acquisition of data. This presentation was delivered by Wefer, Gerold at the Berlin 5 Open Access : From practice to impact : Consequences of Knowledge dissemination, Padova (Italy).

Distilling Strategic Directions for Repositories from Faculty and Librarian Attitudes

Both faculty members and academic librarians express deeply conflicted views about the purpose of repositories, and engagement with repositories varies widely. To what purposes are repositories being put, and what purposes does the community have in mind for them? Is the repository movement just another fad, or is there potential to introduce widespread change? Should repositories be organized on an institutional basis or in some other way? This presentation, by Roger C. Schonfeld, Manager of Research, Ithaka, will share some of the most relevant findings, including breakdowns by institutional profile and, among faculty members, discipline, with an emphasis on some of the strategic directions that these findings indicate.
