Science Paradigms Thousand years ago: science was empirical describing natural phenomena Last few hundred years: theoretical branch using models, generalizations Last few decades: a computational branch simulating complex phenomena Today: data exploration (eScience) unify theory, experiment, and simulation Jim Gray, eScience Group, Microsoft Research
What is the problem with data? analysed synthesised interpreted are becomeInformation is published becomesKnowledge Publication … is accessible … is traceable … is lost!Data
Consequences for Libraries Scientific Information is more than a published article or a book Libraries should open their catalogues to this non-textual information The catalogue of the future is NOT ONLY a window to the librarys holding, but A portal in a net of trusted providers of scientific content
Consequences for Libraries We do not have it BUT We know where you can find And here is the link to it!
Citability of research data High visability of the data Easy re-use and verification of the data sets. Scientific reputation for the collection and documentation of data (Citation Index) Encouraging the Brussels declaration on STM publishing Avoiding duplications Motivation for new research
The dataset: Kuhlmann, H et al. (2009): Age models, iron intensity, magnetic susceptibility records and dry bulk density of sediment cores from around the Canary Islands. doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.727522doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.727522, Is supplement to the article: Kuhlmann, Holger; Freudenthal, Tim; Helmke, Peer; Meggers, Helge (2004): Reconstruction of paleoceanography off NW Africa during the last 40,000 years: influence of local and regional factors on sediment accumulation. Marine Geology, 207(1-4), 209-224, doi:10.1016/j.margeo.2004.03.017
