RDA Recommendations Data Citation and Scholix Adopted By The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC)

The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC) implemented on the one hand, the RDA recommendations for Data Citation to identify and cite dynamic data. On the other hand the Scholix output to link datasets from from the VAMDC.

 

RDA Data standards for Agriculture Adopted By National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA)

The French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) is Europe’s top agricultural research institute and the world’s number two centre for the agricultural sciences. Being part of the Interest Group on Agricultural Data has been particularly fruitful in terms of strategic and technical advances to increase scientific data discoverability and interoperability at community level on Wheat Data for instance, or regarding semantic-based solutions for data handling and analyzing.

RDA Dynamic Data Citation for frequently modifying High Resolution Climate Data Adopted By The Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA)

The Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA) Data Centre expected a comprehensive project outcome of completely new simulated High Resolution Climate Scenarios for Austria in the time range from 1965 till 2100 on a daily basis. For consumption,  13 model runs, 5 meteorological parameters like temperature, 3 emission scenarios, over 1600 NetCDF files with an average size of 13 GB were calculated. How could we implement proper data management processes on such data packages? We were looking for best practices on persistent identifiers and sub-setting tools for such big data containers.

RDA CoreTrustSeal Adopted By The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI)

The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) was launched as a new national infrastructure in June 2015. We developed our research infrastructure hand in hand with the Data Seal of Approval requirements, receiving the Seal soon after our launch. This has facilitated the CoreTrustSeal certification process in 2018 although completing a thorough assessment of one’s work across a range of challenging categories is no small task.

RDA CoreTrustSeal Adopted By The Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS)

The mission of Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) in the Netherlands is to promote and provide permanent access to digital research information. DANS is and has always been heavily involved in creating and achieving certification for the trustworthiness of digital repositories. Over the years we went through the process of acquiring certification with two goals: first, to show our stakeholders the trustworthiness of our repository, and second, to improve our internal processes and update our documentation.

RDA CoreTrustSeal adopted by the Strasbourg astronomical Data Centre CDS

Strasbourg astronomical Data Centre CDS (Centre de Données astronomique de Strasbourg) services are widely used by the worldwide astronomical community. The one million queries per day in 2018, shows that it is considered as fully trustworthy in the disciplinary context. When the World Data System (WDS) defined its criteria for Regular membership, CDS considered it important to join this community, which was initially Earth Sciences and Astronomy. This was done in 2012.
