Title:Identifying Description Indicators for Research Data from Scientific Journal Publications
Author(s):Chao, Tiffany C.
Subject(s):research data description
data curation
data reuse
scholarly publication
Abstract:In order to support the sharing and reuse of scientific research data, rich description about the data must be made available. Scientific journal publications are a potential resource in contributing contextual details about the collection, generation, use, and analysis of data critical for facilitating meaningful interpretation. This poster presents an exploratory study on what information related to data can be identified from published literature on soil science research. The preliminary findings reveal the range of information detailed about data within journal publication including discussion of data sources, referenced techniques and processes applied to data, and description on how data variables were collected and derived. With the growth of digital data, these findings will contribute to the development of a systematic approach for enhancing description in data curation systems and services and fostering data reuse.
