Data Papers

An Open Access Tool for Citizen Science

OBA, Amsterdam Public Library August 16, 2018


GreyWorks 2018 focuses on data papers, an open access tool for citizen science. Data fuels research and informs decision making in every field of study or area of interest. This holds for big data as well as long tail data, which is typically small in size. This seminar on Data Papers discusses the development and application of an innovative tool that allows one the ability to quickly review data or a dataset, determine its relevance, openly access it, and further cite and reuse it for one’s purpose. The seminar is geared to librarians, researchers, and students involved in the compilation, use, and/or  management of data. Emphasis lies in raising awareness to data access and its potential reuse for science and society.

 Five examples of Data Papers:
