Seamless Colloquium: The Knowledge Infrastructure of Astronomy



Phillips Auditorium, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

Abstract: Big data, data-intensive science, and eScience are contemporary terms to describe research fields that generate, manipulate, and manage large volumes of data. Astronomy was among the first data-intensive fields, hence many other domains wish to learn from the experience of astronomers. Their knowledge infrastructure – an ecology of people, practices, technologies, institutions, material objects, and relationships – has accumulated over millennia. Over the last several decades, the practice of astronomy has transitioned...

Data Citations Principles Worshop

Mon - Tue, May 16 to May 17, 8:30am - 5:30pm

The goal of the Data Citation Principles workshop is to facilitate collaboration among leaders in publishing, data archiving and data citation research and to articulate common answers to core questions such as:  Should data that is used to support published research results be cited in peer-reviewed articles presenting those results? Should each citation include sufficient information to allow a unique dataset to be identified over time? Should citations to data appear in a consistent place within publication? Should citations to data be indexable so that they can be used for linkage...
