bioCADDIE Webinar

bioCADDIE (biomedical and healthCAre Data Discovery Index Ecosystem) was recently funded by the US National Institute of Health as part of their Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program to determine how NIH should be moving forward in the creation of a Data Discovery Index (DDI) that will help promote data sharing and reuse by making data findable, accessable, interoperable and reusable (FAIR).  The Center is hosted at UCSD and led by Dr. Lucila Ohno-Machado.  But in recognition of the unique breadth and depth of expertise in FORCE11, we were asked to help lead the community engagement activities for this important undertaking.   

bioCADDIE will be hosting monthly webinars to highlight important efforts underway in the community.  This month’s webinar features Hylke Koers, the head of Content Innovation at Elsevier.

Date: Thursday, January 8th, 2015
Time: 10:00 AM- 11:00 PM (Pacific Time)
1:00 PM- 2:00 PM (Eastern Time)


Hylke Koers, Head of Content Innovation, Elsevier
To enable open sharing, discovery and recognition of research data, it’s essential to have robust and persistent links between data sets and formal scholarly publications. In this presentation I will discuss “the past, present, and future” of such article-data links, focusing on Elsevier’s data-linking program and on the work carried out by the ICSU-WDS / RDA Working Group to set up a universal, open cross-referencing service between articles and data.
