1 Don’t make me think Biodiversity data publishing made easy Vince Smith, Alice Heaton, Laurence Livermore, Simon Rycroft, Ben Scott & Lyubomir Penev* The Natural History Museum London Pensoft Publishing*, Bulgaria

2 Data curation Data curation Data publishing Data publishing What we need is… Data collection & generation Data collection & generation a seamless workflow Data analysis Data analysis

3 Hosted websites for biodiversity data Virtual research environments Completely open access & open source Modular & flexible Running since 2007 Making taxonomy digital, open & linked Scratchpads (http://Scratchpads.eu)

4 65,000 unique visitors/month Per month unique visitors to Scratchpad sites 512 Scratchpad Communities by 6,500 active registered users covering 73,444 taxa in 515,189 pages. Scratchpad usage metrics 81 paper citations in 2012 In total more than 1,300,000 visitors

5 Taxa (Classifications, taxon profiles, specimens, literature, images, maps, phenotypic, genotypic & morphometric datasets, keys, phylogenies) Projects Conservation RegionsSocieties Examples of Scratchpad use

6 Data curation Data curation Data publishing via Scratchpads Data collection & generation Data collection & generation Data analysis Data analysis Data publishing Data publishing No kudos, credit or citation of data in Scratchpads

7 Structured data Publish, cite, disseminate & archive data EOL Dryad GBIF Wiki Species-Id PubMed Plazi Select, describe & annotate data Publication module
