1 Publishing and Cataloguing Datasets It’s time everyone got involved UKSG Conference 2009

2 BUT FIRST, LET’S GET SERIOUS Part 1 OECD likes being cool with data.

3 TIB in Hamburg say they have archived and added DOIs to 500,000 datasets. Yet their most-cited dataset has been cited just 3 times. Some data to start with

4 Either no-one wants to cite data OR, having a DOI by itself isn’t enough So …

5 Let us imagine for a moment...

6 If an article is... A piece of data that is presented in a static, two-dimensional, form. “ “ Geoffrey Bilder, CrossRef, 2007

7 Print HTML PDF Static, two-dimensional objects

8 Active, two-dimensional object

9 Another active, two-dimensional object?

10 It’s a view on a datacube

11 In fact, it’s a view on a collection of datacubes Active, multi-dimensional object!

12 OECD Article Static, two- dimensional object OECD Excel Table Active, two- dimensional object OECD Database Active, multi- dimensional object

13 So, instead of imagining, let’s say we built this. We’d get something like...

14 DatasetOECD Regional Database Excel – Active two- dimensional object Dataset – Active multi- dimensional object PDF – Passive two- dimensional object... this.

15 OK – that’s cool and OECD can do this because we have all the objects in our publishing system. But how are other publishers, authors and librarians coping with data?

Curtin, Death by migration: Europe’s encounter with the tropical world in the nineteenth century, Cambridge University Press, New York (1989).Curtin 1989 and other sources. Tertiary school enrollment: School enrollment, tertiary (% of gross). Source: Barro and Lee (2000) and their databases. Taken from an appendix to an article published in Elsevier’s World Development You can’t fault the author for trying... but it’s not a lot of help for a reader

18 And Librarians, How many are cataloguing datasets in their OPACs in ways which are compatible with search systems for books and journals?

19 Conclusion: Datasets: Scholarly Publishing’s Black Sheep?

23 U sing metadata for: Datasets In the same industry standard formats as... Book chapters and Journal articles

24 Authors will be able to cite... Publishers will be able to link... Discovery systems will be able to find... Librarians will be able to catalogue... Datasets alongside published outputs to the benefit of Everyone

25 A proposed example of a dataset using standard bibliographic and citation metadata. Bibliography of Books that cite this database Citation tool compatible with EndNotes et al Dataset title with ISSN, DOI (& MARC) record

26 There are still challenges: - Dynamic data - Versioning - Preservation But, let’s round the sheep up first.

27 OECD is: issuing a white paper on Publishing Standards for Datasets Speaking with CrossRef about citation standards for dynamic objects publishing OECD datasets with ‘sheepdogs’ from mid-2009: MARC records ONIX records Citation records

28 End of Part One QUESTIONS? DISCUSSION?
