Call For Papers Data Science Journal: Special Collection on Research Data Alliance Results

10 July 2018

The Data Science Journal special collection aims to collect and give visibility to research results and outcomes stemming from RDA activities. In particular, it solicits high quality papers describing the latest results of RDA working groups (WGs) or interest groups (IGs) that have recently produced an output, including recommendation and associated use cases that could highlight the added value of RDA work in the data related fields.

 

The scope of the special collection

To become a point of reference for experts from the international community that are committed to directly or indirectly enabling data sharing, exchange, or interoperability,  is the scope of this special collection. The aim is to promote the work carried out in IGs and WGs and bring the results obtained to the global data expert community. Specific tools, code, best practices, standards, surveys, recommendations, reports, and WG case statements will be brought to a larger audience via the peer-reviewed, open access Data Science Journal.
