Editorial : Mapping the Landscape of Research Data : How JLSC Contributors View this Rapidly Emerging Terrain by Gail Clement and Lisa Schiff

We invited librarians engaged in research data support, and specifically data sharing, to describe their vision and experience in order to paint a picture of this new ecosystem. And contribute they did. The fifteen papers published in this issue cover many of the components of research data knowledge infrastructure defined by Edwards et al. and Borgman. Perhaps more remarkably, all of the research papers submitted to this issue are accompanied by the underlying data either as supplements to the article or as cited datasets published elsewhere. In this way, the 33 contributors to this special issue not only provide critical analysis of an evolving ecosystem ; many also model exemplary data sharing attitudes and behaviors that are essential to its survival.
