Data Preservation, Sharing, and Discovery: Small Science In the Digital Era

Date16-May-2007 ~ 17-May-2007
SummaryEvolutionary biology is at the intersection of a number of disciplines that have take proactive approaches to data preservation and sharing, but there is no registry or repository that can serve as the home for published data in the discipline as a whole. This workshop is intended to help identify the way forward for long-term preservation and sharing for the datasets that underly published works in evolutionary biology. Invited participants include experts from the information science community and representatives from leading evolutionary biology journals. The outcomes of this workshop will be used to guide the future of NESCent's digital data initatiative (DRIADE).
