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?
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.Contact:
