RDA’s Publishing Data Interest Group proposes 4 new Working Groups

The Publishing Data Interest Group of the Research Data Alliance brings together all stakeholders involved in publishing research data. Its goal is to address the implementation of workflows for publishing data and therefore help establish appropriate supporting infrastructure.

A couple of days ago the Interest Group issued a proposal for four new Working Groups under the title "Data Publishing 2020" on the following topics:

  • Workflows
  • Bibliometrics
  • Cost Recovery for Data Centres
  • Data Publication Services

The accompanying documentation is now available for review on the RDA website.

Note also the ongoing discussion in the comment section on the question what is meant by "data" and "publishing data".
