Making data open
PlanetData (http://www.planet-data.eu) is an EU Network of Excellence coordinated by STI Innsbruck. Its main aim is to establish an interdisciplinary, sustainable European community of researchers, helping organizations to expose their data on the Web in a useful way. PlanetData will push forward the state-of-the-art in large-scale data management and its application to the creation of useful, open data sets.
General Data Management
The Keeping Research Data Safe Factsheet [pdf] on the costs and benefits of digital preservation.
The factsheet covers the following major areas:
- Cost issues in digital preservation (what costs most, impact of fixed costs, declining costs over time);
- Benefits from digital preservation (benefits taxonomy, direct benefits, indirect benefits, near-term benefits, long-term benefits);
- Institutional issues (repository models and structures, key cost variables, data collection levels).
