Introducing the Astronomy Dataverse

11:45am to 1:00pm


Phillips Auditorium, Cambridge, MA

The Seamless Astronomy team at the CfA invites you to an "Introduction to the Astronomy Dataverse" next Monday,  April 2, 2012 at 11:45am in Phillips Auditorium.

A "Dataverse" is a web based platform for publishing, citing and preserving your data; it gives you control for what data you release when and it renders your data discoverable to other search tools and thus reusable by other astronomers. Perhaps most critically, it allows this Read more about Introducing the Astronomy Dataverse

Data Citations Principles Worshop

Tue - Wed, May 16 to May 17, 8:30am - 5:30pm

The goal of the Data Citation Principles workshop is to facilitate collaboration among leaders in publishing, data archiving and data citation research and to articulate common answers to core questions such as:  Should data that is used to support published research results be cited in peer-reviewed articles presenting those results? Should each citation include sufficient information to allow a unique dataset to be identified over time? Should citations to data appear in a consistent place within publication? Should citations to data be indexable so that they can be used for linkage and Read more about Data Citations Principles Worshop
