Grey Literature and Persistent Identifiers: GreyNet’s Use Case

Dominic Farace, stefania biagioni, Carlo Carlesi & Chris Baars
The PID (Persistent Identifier) Project is a follow-up to the AccessGrey Project carried out in 2019 in which an online survey was held among stakeholders in GreyNet’s community of practice. Recipients were asked their opinions about persistent identifiers and grey literature. The focus now in this project is expanded to include the DOI for research outputs alongside the ORCiD for authors/researchers, and the ROR ID for research organizations. This project seeks to go beyond a...

Core Characteristics of Learning Resource Collectors

Nancy J. Hoebelheinrich, Elizabeth Newbold, Angus Whyte, Maria Johnsson, Kerstin Helbig, Margareta Hellström, Iryna Kuchma & Mijke Jetten
As part of the Education And Training On Handling Of Research Data IG (ETHRD-IG) activities, the Learning Resource Collectors Focus Group studied the evolving landscape of learning resources on RDM topics. As we collected and listed a snapshot of current catalogues or registries of learning resources for review, we realized that a set of core characteristics could describe these types of organisations that would be useful to help people evaluate and understand the resources they...

On Open Access to Research Data: Experiences and reflections from DANS

Emilie Kraaikamp, Marjan Grootveld, Hella Hollander & Dirk Roorda
This paper addresses the question of what open access means in relation to research data. To that end we briefly discuss the definition of open access and the most important expected benefits; highlight the publication - data distinction and the challenges regarding research data; discuss research data and open access in terms of its focus, licensing, and current practices at DANS in publishing data sets open access. Use case illustrate challenges and positive developments. As...

Open data, grey literature and disciplinary differences – Perspectives from a Dutch data archive

Marnix van Berchum
Since 2005 Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) promotes sustained access to digital research data. DANS offers several services to support this, including the online archiving system EASY, the Dutch Dataverse Network and the portal NARCIS. In this paper these services will be presented, including the differences we encounter between the disciplines using these services. Within the disciplines served by DANS – mostly belonging to the Social Sciences and Humanities – differences can be discerned...

Linking full-text grey literature to underlying research and post-publication data: An Enhanced Publications Project 2011-2012

Dominic Farace, Jerry Frantzen, Christiane Stock, Laurents Sesink & Debbie Rabina
This project seeks to circumvent the data vs. documents camp in the grey literature community by way of a middle ground provided through enhanced publications. Enhanced publications allow for a fuller understanding of the process in which data and information are used and applied in the generation of knowledge. The enhanced publication of grey literature precludes the idea of a random selection of data and information, and instead focuses on the human intervention in data-rich...

Accessing Grey Literature in an Integrated Environment of Scientific Research Information

Elly Dijk & Chris Baars
Co-authored together with C. Baars, A. Hogenaar, and M. van Meel: The DARE programme was initiated in the Netherlands by the SURF Foundation, the Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The objective of the programme was to enable digital access to research results of all the Dutch scientific institutions. Since the DARE programme (2003 - 2006), all the institutes involved have had...

Recommendations for a minimal metadata set to aid harmonised discovery of learning resources

Nancy J. Hoebelheinrich, Katarzyna Biernacka, Michelle Brazas, Leyla Jael Castro, Nicola Fiore, Margareta Hellström, Emma Lazzeri, Ellen Leenarts, Paula Maria Martinez Lavanchy, Elizabeth Newbold, Amy Nurnberger, Esther Plomp, Lucia Vaira, Celia W.G. van Gelder & Angus Whyte
As part of the Education And Training On Handling Of Research Data IG activities, the Minimal Metadata for Learning Resources Focus Group recommends a minimal set of metadata for learning resources. By comparing and analyzing existing learning resource-related metadata schemas to find the overlaps, the group provides guidance on metadata elements that should be minimally required for purposes of learning resource discovery to those concerned with supporting or providing training resources. This set includes a...
