DataCite Summer Meeting 2010: The international consortium invites to its first workshop

29.04.2010
DataCite, the international consortium for the citation of research data invites together with the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) to its first summer meeting from June 7th to 8th 2010 in Hannover, Germany.

DataCite was founded in December 2009 and its objectives are to make it easier for scientists to access research data over the Internet, to increase acceptance of research data as quotable scientific objects in themselves and thus to ensure that the rules of good scientific practice continue to be adhered to.

The scope of the event is to provide a forum to data centres to exchange experience, workflows and standards for the handling of research data. Under the theme „Making datasets visible and accessible“, experts will discuss the following topics:

- Metadata for datasets: More than pure citation information?
- Peer-review systems and the publication of data sets: Ensuring quality
- Trustworthiness of data centres: A technological, a structural and a legal discussion
- Best-practise and examples: What can be done and is done worldwide?
- Visualisation of datasets: More than meets the eye
- Datasets and scholarly journals: A perfect combination?
The full programme and additional information on the venue and registration can be found on the website http://www.datacite.org.

DataCite has 12 members from 9 countries: The British Library, the French L’Institut de l’Information Scientifique et Technique (INIST), the Technical Information Center of Denmark, the library of the TU Delft from the Netherlands, the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), the California Digital Library (USA), the Purdue University (USA), the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), the German National Library of Medicine (ZB MED), the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), GESIS- Leibniz Institute of Social Sciences and the library of the ETH Zurich in Switzerland.

DataCite is following the example of the successful work by the TIB as the world's first DOI-registration agency for research data. Since 2005 the TIB has already registered around 700,000 research data objects with a DOI name making the data easier to access and at the same time rendering them quotable. DataCite is an

official DOI registration agency and a member of the International DOI Foundation (IDF). The DataCite office is managed by the TIB in Hannover.

The TIB is the German National Library for all areas of engineering as well as architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. It is the largest library in the world in its areas.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
