Linking peer-reviewed literature to associated datasets

OpenAIREplus is a large-scale EU project bringing together 41 pan-European partners, including three cross-disciplinary research communities. OpenAIREplus aims to:

“…create a robust, participatory service for the cross-linking of peer-reviewed scientific publications and associated datasets.”

The 30 month project launched in December 2011 (see Bill’s post on this launch) and on the 11th June they will be presenting an OpenAIREplus workshop in conjunction with the Nordbib Conference 2012 Copenhagen, June 11-13, 2012 . The OpenAIREplus workshop “Linking Open Access publications to data – policy development and implementation” looks really interesting with a very exciting programme and I am hoping they will make the workshop presentations and outputs available after the event.

The workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in this topic, and will be of interest to library managers, researchers, research funders, repository managers, journal editors and publishers, and research administrators. Topics covered include:

  • Preparing and writing institutional data management policies
  • An overview of funder’s responsibilities and requirements towards data availability and management
  • An overview of linking research publications and data
  • The research data landscape
