On Trial until Nov. 30: Discover data from research repositories. Tell us your opinion.

The Library is hosting a trial to Data Citation Index, a brand new Thomson Reuters database for discovering data sets and studies in persistent and stable repositories, such as the Pennsylvania State University,  the National Cancer Institute and Stanford School of Medicine, to name a few. The trial only lasts until Nov. 30.

Research data from the social sciences, physical sciences, life science, and arts and humanities is included, and discoverable data sets are linked to the scholarship it informs.

This new resource has the potential for facilitating the creation of Data Management Plans required by the National Science Foundation for funding.

For additional information about the Falvey trial to this important initiative see Linda Hauck’s blog.
