After several months of discussion, consultation, drafting and re-drafting, The Hague Declaration on Knowledge Discovery in the Digital Age was officially launched in Brussels, at a special event held at the offices of Science Europe on 6 May 2015.The Declaration is openly accessible to all and accepting signatures from individuals and organisations who wish to support its principles.
The report contains the ALLEA E-Humanities working group's recommendations regarding key requirements to ensure continued growth and excellence in the Digital Humanities for the EU. The 3 Key Recommendations are Take a long-term view, Encourage openness and Support your People.
Science 2.0 is a new approach to science that uses information-sharing and collaboration made possible by network technologies. This consultation sought to gather the opinions of a broad sample of interested parties from across the EU research landscape. It aimed to better understand the potential impact of Science 2.0 and the desirability of policy action.
This study of more than 100 currently existing data journals describes the approaches they promote for data set description, availability, citation, quality, and open access and it identifies ways to expand and strengthen the data journals approach as a means to promote data set access and exploitation.
Information and communication technology (ICT) advances in research infrastructures are continuously changing the way research and scientific communication are performed.
The traditional paradigm of research publishing by articles cannot cope with the increasing demands of immediate access and effective reuse of research results.
The e-IRG White Paper 2014 provides advice, best practices and recommendations to the proposers for the next ESFRI Roadmap on questions related to e-Infrastructure needs. Nevertheless the White Paper provides useful information for all e-IRG stakeholders, containing an overview of existing European e-Infrastructures and related services.
Whilst most researchers appreciate the benefits of sharing research data, on an individual basis they may be reluctant to share their own data.
The "Showing the Seed" study, commissioned by Knowledge Exchange, has gathered evidence, examples and opinions on current and future incentives for research data sharing from the researcher’s point of view, in order to provide recommendations for policy and practice development on how best to incentivise data access and reuse.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge initiative (BD2K) held a workshop in September 2013 called "Frameworks for Community-based Standards Efforts". The workshop aimed at gaining a clearer understanding of the community-based data and metadata standards efforts, in particular, and how NIH might best relate to them.
A team of European experts have generated this new report to outline how Europe must act now to secure it’s standing in future data markets. It offers recommendations to European policy makers while outlining the benefits and challenges.
