DataPub Blog on Data Publication

DataPub at CDL has recently published a blog post, “Fifteen Ideas about Data Validation (and Peer Review),” by John Kratz who discusses a new concept of ‘data validation’ and emerging practices of dataset peer review. Kratz mentions that “(s)ome form of validation at some stage in a data publication process is essential… However, the scientific literature’s validation mechanisms don’t translate as directly to data as its mechanism for, say, citation.”

If you’d like to find out more about data citation, DataPub’s new webpage may be of interest to you.
