I am writing to share that the Wellcome Trust and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative have partnered with DataCite to build the Open Global Data Citation Corpus. This work will dramatically transform the data citation landscape. The corpus will store asserted data citations from a diverse set of sources and can be used by any community stakeholder. Aggregated references to data across outputs will help the community monitor impact, inform future funding, and improve the dissemination of research.
A kickoff webinar will be held on Monday February 13 at 10:00 am Eastern/9:00 am Central for a conversation between DataCite, Wellcome Trust, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, EMBL-EBI, COKI, OpenAIRE, and OpenCitations. Anyone who is interested can either join us in real time or receive a link to the recording post-event.
Please feel free to share with colleagues and let me know if you have any questions or if I can otherwise be of assistance.
