Workflows for Research Data Publishing : Models and Key Components

Publié le 3 mars 2017, par Thérèse Hameau

The Recommendation from the RDA/WDS Publishing Data Workflows Working Group provides an analysis of existing and emerging workflows and standards for data publishing and reference models and implementations for application in new workflows. The Group’s work stems from the fact that researchers are increasingly encouraged or required to make their research data available for reuse, but due to insufficient incentives for submitting and publishing data, there are often low submission rates. Furthermore, even when research data are preserved and submitted, there is minimal metadata, which inhibits reuse. Workflows that enable persistence, quality control and access are all crucial to enhance the possibilities for greater discoverability as well as efficient and reliable reuse of research data.
