Dear Michael et al.
that is a very timely reminder.
As we are working heavily on the revision of the article for IJDL, we had a
long discussion last week on definitions we provide. Claire Austin (among
others) had been contributing a lot to this particular task and has been
liaising with both groups.
We would be happy to liaise with you and Gary in more detail to align our

Leonardo,
Thanks for the prompt response. I have a few (2 cents worth of) thoughts on
what you said and I expect that some of the main folks involved in the WG
will too, such as on the idea that how publishing is implemented (say to the
Web) is now part of the definition. I wonder of types of publishing/release
such as to the web or a journal are distinguished as publishing sub-types.
They appear in workflows for examples and may be distinguished there. So
perhaps as work terms for the workflow are discussed there will be suitable
definitions to make things clear.

This is a point that would potentially apply across all the RDA groups. I
agree that research data is the main type of data that RDA might focus on,
but wonder if this distinction is relevant. Much data is generated by
research activities while other "data" may come from non-research sources
and then applied to a research question. It then becomes research data in a
similar way that something might become metadata although not consciously
generated for that role. This does fit your definition below since it
becomes evidence for a research activity etc.

The Data Foundations and Terminology WG (and now the IG) touched on this
issue of Collections and Aggregations but we didn't have enough converging
input from members to arrive as agreed upon and useful definitions. Some
members talk in terms of Digital Objects as the Unit of Info (or as the
carrier of Info, which I prefer). But distinctions between datasets and
data collections is not settled although I lean towards a dataset being a
unit from which data collections are assembled for particular collection
purposes.

Dear Michael et al.
that is a very timely reminder.
As we are working heavily on the revision of the article for IJDL, we had a
long discussion last week on definitions we provide. Claire Austin (among
others) had been contributing a lot to this particular task and has been
liaising with both groups.
We would be happy to liaise with you and Gary in more detail to align our
interests and outcomes better/more. Would be good to coordinate the
integration of definitions on both sides, I think.
Thanks for reaching out.
Best wishes,
Sünje

Subject: [rdawds_workflows_wg] AW: [rdawds_workflows_wg] Development of Data
Publishing Vocabulary
Dear Gary, Sünje et al,
what has be the outcome of this communication. Reading through the mail I
thought that a vocabulary would indeed extend some of the activities
currently going on under the umbrella of the IG data publishing. In
particular important is the definition of publication types. PANGAEA is
currently working on the definition of data collection, so our group will be
happy to contribute to some aspects.
What is the further planning?

Betreff: Re: [rdawds_workflows_wg] Development of Data Publishing Vocabulary
Leonardo,
Thanks for the prompt response. I have a few (2 cents worth of) thoughts on
what you said and I expect that some of the main folks involved in the WG
will too, such as on the idea that how publishing is implemented (say to the
Web) is now part of the definition. I wonder of types of publishing/release
such as to the web or a journal are distinguished as publishing sub-types.
They appear in workflows for examples and may be distinguished there. So
perhaps as work terms for the workflow are discussed there will be suitable
definitions to make things clear.
>A key decision to be taken is whether to "characterise" the term data or
not and then use this decision accordingly.

"data publishing". If this is the case the definition of "data publishing"

This is a point that would potentially apply across all the RDA groups. I
agree that research data is the main type of data that RDA might focus on,
but wonder if this distinction is relevant. Much data is generated by
research activities while other "data" may come from non-research sources
and then applied to a research question. It then becomes research data in a
similar way that something might become metadata although not consciously
generated for that role. This does fit your definition below since it
becomes evidence for a research activity etc.
>In a paper my colleagues and I are working on we are using something like:
· Research Data: entities used as evidence of phenomena for the purpose of
research or scholarship;
o This definition is borrowed from Borgman, C. L., 2015. Big Data, Little
Data, No Data: Scholarship in the Networked World. The MIT Press.
· Research Data Publishing: the release of research data for (re)use by
others.
o The key aspects are
§ "release", i.e. "making available to the public";
§ "(re)use", i.e. the motivation of publishing is to make it possible for
others to use the "product";
o The how publishing is expected to be implement should not be part of
the definition. Publishing can happen by a "data paper", by the deposition
in a repository, etc.
>It is also useful to use the concept of dataset here to introduce the

The Data Foundations and Terminology WG (and now the IG) touched on this
issue of Collections and Aggregations but we didn't have enough converging
input from members to arrive as agreed upon and useful definitions. Some
members talk in terms of Digital Objects as the Unit of Info (or as the
carrier of Info, which I prefer). But distinctions between datasets and
data collections is not settled although I lean towards a dataset being a
unit from which data collections are assembled for particular collection
purposes.
