The ODE project has delivered a report to the European Commission on Integration of Data & Publications. The report explores the impact that data sharing has had on scholarly communication.
This report seeks to coalesce current though and opinions from numerous and diverse sources to reveal opportunities for supporting a more connected and integrated scholarly record. Four perspectives were considered, those of the Researcher, who generates or reuses primary data, Publishers, who provide the mechanisms to communicate research activities, and Libraries & Data Centers, who maintain and preserve the evidence that underpins scholarly communication and the published record.
The Opportunities for Data Exchange project is funded under FP7
