Academic Publishing – Streamlining Access to Research Data


Academic Publishing moving into fast lane

Academic publishing, also referred to as STM (Scientific, Technical and Medical) publishing, is getting a revved up engine and moving into the fast lane through a collaborative effort by Thompson Reuters and the Australian National Data Service (ANDS).

All of us who have done research for academic degrees, or for any other pure research mission, understand how important ‘data sets’ or repositories of information relating to our research topic are. In the past, finding the data to research was often a research project in itself!

The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters is in the process of creating a Data Citation Index to harness and bring together global data sets so research done in other countries can be more easily accessed, furthered and given proper credit. ‘Currently, the Data Citation Index contains approximately 3.5 million data records from nearly 130 repositories.’ I love it!

ANDS is one of a growing number of institutions included in the Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index.

The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters has announced a collaboration with Australian National Data Service (ANDS) to aid in the discovery of global data sets. The collaboration connects researchers to data repositories through the Data Citation Index, a single-point solution providing access to quality research data sets from multi-disciplinary repositories worldwide.

ANDS is one of a growing number of institutions included in the Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index. The collaboration ensures that Australian research is discoverable, properly attributed and reusable by other researchers. The influx of data from Australia also provides a wealth of new content that can be cited and furthered by researchers around the world.
