A poster on semantics for data is available for use

Dear all,
I'm happy to share this poster with you. It was created at the occasion
of theGODAN summit with the collaboration of
the two brand new working groups Agrisemantics and Rice Data
This poster aims at promoting semantics to address issues resulting from
the various points of view on a same object in agriculture. The example
used is rice but it is easily transposable to other subjects. Feel free
to use and share it.
It is available in the WDI WG folder

Considering submitting WDI results for journal publication ?

Hi all,
I take this middle-summer-cool-down opportunity to raise by email a
question. about publishing the results of the WDI group.
It has been discussed a couple of time informally but I don't know if some
did took a decision.
Should we consider submitting the results of the WDI group for journal
publication ?
There have been deliverables, products, and guidelines. RDA is made for
making people meet and work, but what stays over time (and are important for
evaluation) are journal publications.
