The US region of the Research Data Alliance (RDA/US) invites applications for its Early Career Data Share fellowship program. The successful Fellows will engage with RDA through carrying out self-proposed projects with RDA groups and through extensive networking and communication with the RDA community. The projects will be carried out independently, and be relevant to the goals and interests of an RDA Working, Interest, or Coordination Group (e.g., Technical Advisory Board).
The RDA Working Group on Data Citation (WG-DC) brings together a group of experts to discuss the issues, requirements, advantages and shortcomings of existing approaches for efficiently citing subsets of data. The WG-DC focuses on a narrow field where significant contributions can be made and provides prototypes and reference implementations.
