Unlocking the Value of Research Data: A Report from the Thomson Reuters Industry Forum
To address evolving issues about research data, Thomson Reuters has convened its Industry Forum, to serve as a platform for leaders in the scientific, technical, and medical (STM) publishing to discuss strategic trends, technological developments, and paradigm shifts in the field of scholarly communications, and to recommend industry initiatives in support of the attendant opportunities. The forum met on April 29 in Washington, DC, to discuss research data and other pressing matters.
Based on the forum discussion, Thomson Reuters published a White Paper entitled Unlocking the Value of Research Data. The report begins with the quotation of Gerry Grenier, senior director of Publishing Technologies at IEEE: “There is tremendous opportunity regarding data-repository curation, but we need to develop a business model.”
